Off to the BROMPTON to have liver ultrasound and US Transthorasic echocardiogram tomorrow.This is to see if I,ll be able to have LVRS (again) but it will also depend on my fitness which is not good at the moment because it,s too bleeding cold to go walking outside and still no word on my next PR,waiting since October.Still doing my weights but feel I really would benefit from PR.All I seem to do these days is shove drugs down my throat when a session in the gym would be so much better?Just told GP to re-refer me but seem to be fighting a losing battle at the moment.Oh well that little rant made me feel a bit better lol.Have my half teaspoon of morphine to cheer myself up haa haa.Night night friends "sweet dreams are made of this".D.
BROMPTON visit tomorrow!: Off to the... - British Lung Foun...
Hi Flibberti,won,t be seeing any consultant just the hard working underpaid "normal" staff.They,re usually a joy to be around so it should be ok.I have a terrible time getting into cabs though,Don,t know why ,must be a bit of claustrophobia I think.Oh well it get me out of the house for a bit at least.I should stop moaning really lots are worse off than me.Take care now,D.
Fingers (and toes) crossed for you FarmerD. Let us know the results please. Sweet dreams. x
It's such a shame there are not enough support for us yet .so we have to suffer unesasary problems ,I lack exersize because of their sill rules,can only take well people not those that oxy drops too low, you get no help at all,fall through the net,depends what area you live in aswell, at least you got a bit. Of morphine to cheer yourself up,good luck today,hope it's not too cold for you.
The best of luck xxx
Hope it all goes/went well at Royal Brompton FarmerD. I always have seen different 'locum' consultants at the hospitals I have attended for Respiratory. It is frustrating sometimes. Thinking of asking my GP to refer me to Royal Brompton Hospital but not sure if the treatment will be any different to present hosp treatment. WIsh you all the best.
Good luck D ! And if all else fails you can at least have a good night's sleep to look forward to when you come back. Delighted that the Oramorph is helping you sleep. Everything's much easier to vope with when you have a good nights sleep.
