Since my trachy was taken out in February 2000 I’ve had an ICU cough over time it got worse; because of the cancer risk I was sent for X-rays and fairly quickly followed by a CAT scan in November. It wasn’t cancer😀 but pulmonary fibrosis but they weren’t too sure whether it was caused by my methotrexate or pneumonia so my MTX was stopped. 4 ½ months later I have been seen a thoracic specialist who has confirmed that it wasn’t the MTX but double pneumonia. He had read my notes and said I was really lucky to be alive!
So my lungs are are damaged and won’t get better just need to ensure they don’t get any worse. Hey ho
