Like Really A Don't Want My Lung Blood Vessels Remodeling ... But Looks Like Am Unwilling Participant

Looks Like Days Of Me Enjoying A Good Fag Are Coming To A Close ... Currently I Am Suffering From Bronchiectasis And Intermittent Pulmonary Vascular Resistance And Emphysema And Associated Fibrosis .... Thanks Mainly To My Asbestos Exposure

My Main Concern Is Whats Going On With This Pulmonary Vascular Resistance Now Given Atos Say Lung Problems Don't Affect Your Heart A Would Disagree Like Really Know One Told Me About This

Look Like I Might Have To Cut Back On My Country Slices As My BMI Was 25.9 Thats Just 00.9 Over My Ideal 25.0 :O

But There Is A Serious Side As I Have Read Only Help Is Oxygen With Pulmonary Vascular Resistance ... And When A Tried It At Hospital It Was Awful Stuff I Liked It To Trying To Suck Breath Threw A Brick

Like I Have Asked My Doc's Lung Specialist About It .... And Why Me Heart Feels Strange But They Never Told Me How Terrible It Is .... Just Put It Down To Being Aware ...

Anyway Am Not Going To Obsess Just Was After Finding Out From Others Asbestos Suffers And Or Anyone Else Has Symptoms Condition Like Mine

Sorry to read all this, daz. How much do you want to give up smoking? It could help things not to get worse. I know no wheeze is doing very well with giving up smoking. Read her blogs. Otherwise I cant help, just give best wishes which wont be of much practical help to you. All the best annieseed x

Come on Daz, set the date, throw the fags away and have a piggy bank for the money you will save. I nagged nowheeze to death and I think she is on her 6th no smoking day. If the ladies can do it, so can you. You have a busy brain - apply it to your WILL POWER. We will back you, believe me.

I did it and I had smoked since I was 12.Went cold turkey as patches gave me nightmares 20 months now .I think it would kill me to smoke now I really cant go within 10 yards of one. With all your problems I am surprised that you manage to smoke.Nowheeze would like some company in her battle with the evil weed.

Think Thats More To Do With Fake Fags Corner Shops Sell

But What I Have Found Is That Yes Have Enjoyed A Fag ... But Dust And Pollution Affects Me More

Think Its To Do With What Caused Your Illness Bit Like Allergies

lung problems do throw up heart problems,,i,m having to go for a echocardiogram as one of my vents in the heart may not be working properly,,and that causes shortness of breath as well,,,could explain why i don,t get lung infections,,,and daz,,do give up the fags,,you will feel better for it,,,,,

I'm with chrissie53, I think the heart and lungs are so connected one will affect the other. The lungs oxygenate the blood, the blood passes through the heart to circulate all around the body to our organs, if the blood is not well oxygenated we are bound to have other health issues arising although of course it is not written in stone that everyone will.

You need to give up the fags when you are ready daz, but it is better for the sake of your lungs to do so sooner rather than later.

this article may give you some information that helps you stop:
