Hi all yup some will remember me as dazisnotsogood

Yup am still nocking about and still worse for ware ... anyway hope everyone has had good xmas or as near as

Anyway things are still same if not worse ... But apart from that am ok

On a serious note yup am still coughing up lung tissue or what ever docs choose to say it is

Which brings me to point i have to conceded or agree with docs as could any number of things but both finally agree is lung tissue

Today is talk about scandal of mesothelioma misdiagnosis

mainly misdiagnosed as pneumonia asthma etc shocking really what go's on and with scandal of NHS over load things can only get worse for suffers

Iidb and gov know lung scaring is marked decrease in FEV & PEF are final stages of any asbestos related disease yet gov know this to well also they know most suffers suffer from heart failular before any marked lung scaring fibrosis yet they still rip those of who have history of marked asbestos exposer

mesothelioma like asbestosis is classed as inflammatory and immunity condition that creates the right environment within your body for cells to mutate coexisting with less serious conditions in comparison

Looking at tissue sample i coughed up its easy to see how misdiagnoses can come about

Looking at picture : that is coughed up respiratory epithelium tissue a think its called it could be aspergillus yuk yuk or pneumonia am not to thrilled about or even start of inflammation and mesothelioma as immunity issues and inflamation are and asbestos exposure are all clear makers

Hi Fibberti as much as I would like to agree I have to disagree .... Unfortunately as much as we would like or not healthunlocked just to be about us and personal preference it not ....

As it's bigger than any of us and rightly so .... When I joined this site was from search on Google as was most informed and relevant to my search query answers I was looking for no mater how un palatable it might of bean at the time

I agree my posts migh not be to everyone's taste BUT I don't ask them to censor there condition's post After all it's a health forum not Facebook


Hi Daz. Good to see you on here again, hope you are going to stick around. I don't find your photos offensive at all. You describe what the content of them are but be honest I can't make them out.at all. The one on this post could be a picture of the sun! All the best for 2015, hope its a good one for you. x

As far as pic that is from my bronchial tubes small airways as can't see alveoli like my other pics ... But am getting better microscope with a display my old was turning me into pop eye lol

Or am getting older could even be steriode inhalers

Cheers thanks


Hi Fibberti thanks for reply

It's not sputum it's lung tissue and yes it benefits me a great deal also the science community lucky have a interest even if others don't

Like my other pictures you can see effect of smoking and asbestos and inflammation patterns even down to blood cells mutating in coughed up lung tissue

I under stand it's not to everyone's taste but is mine and is good job there are others who are interested or we would be really up shhh creak with out a paddle then we would all have something to worry about myself included of curse



Glad your back on the scene!! Xx
