Still no letter from the hospital about my foot op.
Had my CT scan on Monday - quite fascinating - all the lights whizzing backwards and forwards and a voice telling me when to breathe in and out. Seen my consultant today and it is the MTX which has caused the lung inflammation so I am off that permanently now. He showed me the cross section of my lungs which was interesting and pointed out the area of inflammation. He is also referring me to the chest consultant at the main hospital in Norwich to confirm his findings and treatment and to ensure there is nothing else going wrong. I will be on steroids for up to 2 months to get rid of the inflammation.
So at least I know what it is. Apparently a reaction to MTX usually occurs within months of taking it - I have been on it for some years so unusual for a reaction to occur at such a late stage. But I always did things differently! That's actually also my old Uni motto "Do Different"!. Lovely hubby drove me over to the clinic and also for a bit of moral support.
Son coming up later to try and mend my recliner chair (he is an electrician) as it has stopped working. We have changed the fuse in the plug but still doesn't work so he is coming to have a good look at it. I do miss it.
So hope the steroids do the tricki and get rid of the inflammation and I will stop being breathless again.
