Hi Guys! Today I went to see a lung consultant who had my results from the bronchoprovication test and also my results from my ct lung scan I had in Ireland last October! Well, finally he agreed that I do not have asthma, but he doesn't know what is wrong with me! One of the differential diagnosis of my scan was hypersensitivity pneumonitis and he thinks it might be that, but of course he isn't sure and I disagree as I have moved from Ireland to England and my breathing is getting worse not better! I also showed him my 02 report that I have been keeping (I've been testing my oxygen level every morning, mid day and evenings) he put his own oxymeter on my finger and said..."Come with me" so I followed him along a corridor...my 02 was 92 and we walked for a few minutes, then we climbed up a flight of stairs, all the while the level was going down, down, down...by the time it reached 82 I said "I have to stop now" and I did! Well the out come is, I need a biopsy done...so that is going to be arranged. And Ive asked about getting oxygen at home, he said I would need a test which I think he has ordered for me as I told him it dropped to 74 the other day and I literally thought I was going to die,.,so we shall see what happens from here! I did get to see my lung scan and if I'm honest, it rather upset me to see all of the black areas, especially on my left lung...but at least I've got a dr who said no it isn't asthma lol,..phew!
