Hello folks,well wasn't expecting that,just home to my lovely home near famous Giants Causeway, was at hospital in Belfast for long awaited appointment with Professor who specialises in lung conditions (I have asthma, copd ,bronchitis ,plural plax and emphysema) I've never ever ,smoked ,was there re' shadow on left lung,that is getting bigger,good news is it wasn't "that" but got a real shocker from Professor when she told me that the three sets of tests id had showed latent TB (non contagious) she is arranging eyesight and hearing tests for me to form a baseline as medication will affect these to some degree, totally blessed to be getting so well looked after but a bit of a shock, thing is I'm actually feeling relatively well at the moment so upwards and onwards, regards to all,Ger
Just back: Hello folks,well wasn't... - Lung Conditions C...
That must have been quite a shock but it must feel good to be home now. So pleased you’re being well cared for and wishing you good days ahead. Xxx💝
Aww thank you 😊
Glad you are back home and things are looking good for you Have a lovely day and take care 😊 Bernadette and Jack 🐕 xxxxxx 🌻🌻
I can imagine what a shock that was. Hope you get the best possible care now but it sounds as if your professor is on the ball.
Your very lucky with your specialist, seems to be taking good care of you. Hope it all works out well 👍xxx
Wow that must have been a real shock to you Ger, but at least you are being well looked after and getting the treatment you need. Its a long course of antibiotics so make sure you look after yourself x
Thank you for your optomism. I myself only take my Disabilities as they arrive.No point worrying over stuff that might happen ,, gotta live now!!
Gosh -you do have a lot going on. Your prof sounds an excellent lady; wish there were more like her. Hope she'll soon have you as comfortable as possible. I never got to the Giant's Causeway when I was in NI - sad- but saw plenty of other lovely places, some of them from under an umbrella.😊😊
Thanks very much, I'll be grand and think it was Dr Samuel Johnson who said of the Giants Causeway "worth seeing but not worth going to see" don't know about that, "you can be the juiciest most succulent peach in the bowl but there will always be someone who doesn't like peaches " you may have gathered by now I love quotations 😅
That is such a lot but your positivity will carry you through. You have a lovely part of the world to live in as you recover. My very best wishes, Grace
Wow! Bit of a shock! I read a book by Betty Macdonald, 'The plague and I ' about her experience with TB. It's actually humorous but it was written in the 40s so treatment is very different now, fortunately! Hope you recover very soon.
Aww thank you and that's really informative must ask get that book humour especially as its serious subject but also
The book certainly made me thankful for antibiotics and the nhs!
I sent for the book you suggested, thanks again
It's interesting from a historical point of view too. The old sanatoriums with rest and fresh air being the main 'cures'.
Glad your home in that lovely part of Northern Island, sorry have such wide range of health conditions, note that never smoked. Yes I’ve never smoked because of condition I was born with, PCD. Good that professor is giving you lot of attention, hope continues and helps. Good luck. x
Many thanks and all the best to you also
