Hello all, I have joined this community because my hubby has lung problems.
Over twenty yrs ago he was diagnosed with Pleural Plaques, now I know all the official info on PP,s say they cause no probs.
He has had a Bronchoscopy about a yr back and the sister on the unit told me they had to stop itbecause his lungs were bleeding too much.
So we were eventually told that there is no thickening or change from previous scan etc.
The Consultant told us my hubby certainly does not feel pain or get congested because of PP,s.
He has lost 7 colleagues to Mesothelioma and I think they think hubby is imagining his problems due to that.
Well I would like every single person who tells us he does not have any symptoms from these scars to live my hubby,s life for one day....just one !
He is constantly doing physio to try to clear congestion he stays in the shower for an hour which does help loosen the mucus so he can sometimes cough it up a bit. Sorry for too much info.
He coughs all day and night, never completely pain free and has very low energy levels.
I am a retired nurse and it is killing me that I cannot help him.
Also very angry that we are not believed
Thank you if you got this far, I appreciate you reading this.
