First thanks to all of you for your kindness and support. I got a mail from the hospital consultant saying "he studied the scan CD and he can confirm I have a cystic pneumopathy. They are several forms and the work will consists in affining the diagnostic. I will explain it all on the 8th."
However I didn't feel reassured after that so I wrote back!: "I expect testing will enlighten you further but the name doesn't seem quite reassuring. Is there some cure?"
To which he answered " I will tell you all about it on the 8th, some illnesses have a specific treatment, others no.
But in general patients have a regular check-up as we don't expect a quick progression.
Well there you are you know as much as I do so when a bed is free I will go in for 3 weeks and hopefully find out more.
I will keep you informed because I believe your health is worth fighting for. So in doubt you've all got that European health card, have you, well it's free on line as long as we don't get out at the next referendum. Of course speaking the language helps.
In France Lille is a top lung teaching hospital and only a eurostar away. Of course you have to go to a state hospital to qualify not some private clinic.
But in a case like this I find it useful.
We keep in touch and kindest regards to all of you xx
