((Hugs)) I don't understand why they haven't done a Bronchoscopy on you either. I have to say, its not a pleasant test to have, but well worth it. It was done in the X-Ray Dept. under a mild sedative, but I was awake coughing and gagging...Yuck! I coughed up a little blood for a few hours after but, no other problems from it. I was glad when it was over though!
Did they do a CT and if so, what did it show? This is something your doctor should be taking more seriously. Not to try and scare you but, I was getting a lung function test every month till I started on the Cytoxan. My Rheumy sat me down and pointed to the numbers on the test results and I was loosing 10% of a certain number every month. Sorry, I can't remember what that number stood for. She said if that number got down to 50% I would need a lung transplant. It was at 60% when I started the treatments. Thanks to her aggressive treatment I got better.
Oh, I'm not having trouble breathing. I think I worded that wrong before, sorry. I have been coughing alot lately, a few little pains and very mild SOB. Nothing like before, I just want to stay on top of this before it gets any worse.
I hope you sleep well tonight. Take care. I'm praying for you sweetie!
Love ya, Babs
