Losing Sat's a concern, Rheumatoid Arthritis not Helping

Over the last two or three weeks my Sat's are dropping quicker than normal when I am mobile even short distances, I have done great since my release over two years ago without any issues at all The transplant team have arranged more walking tests for 8th Jan and need to know the results a.s.a.p. Already they have informed me that even being on the active list I will move up to the priority list which hopefully means I will get a few offers for my lung transplant. Until then I have to learn to take it easier than I've been doing. My Rheumatoid Arthritis is the killer for me constant pain 24/7 it drags you down to a level you don't want to be how my body has taken the pain and the times I've said to Fran Darling I cannot take anymore it's not a selfish act that what it does Fran holds me she know where I'm coming from and am no quitter and then I think off all the people who have got me here and that's why I am telling you lovely people out the in similar circumstances. Will keep you updated. Mattcass

Hi Matt you are not quitter I know over the years the pain you have been in you will get there

Take care




You are definitely not a quitter - more an inspiration. Pain is so very draining and dragging and I am sorry you have this to deal with too. Hope the sats start to behave themselves.

Keep on keeping on dear man.



Thinking of you Matt. Hope the tests turn out good for you. Hang in there it will improve for you. X


Glad to hear from you. Keep your chin up , Fran is a brick for you she will hold on to you. Hopefully your results are good. XX



I'm sorry to hear your struggling so much Matt, I hope you get some relief from it all soon.

Good luck on your test results xx
