I went to the hospital & had a letter back with the results of the initial hospital tests (which were carried out before I have the blood tests & breath tests & scan)
It mentions a more detailed diagnosis -but one thing that is a little comforting is that my doctor said there was no evidence of lung cancer (but thats only her opinion ) - the other tests will comfirm for sure either way( so Im going to remain concerned & sceptical)
Ive got to have an autoantibody screen & a farmers lungs precipitant -what's that & what's farmers lungs?
OMG I just googled it & there is a sentence that says Farmer's lung is a type of allergic pneumonia specifically associated with breathing air in areas of hay, grain or silage that are contaminated with various molds or heat-tolerant bacteria.
That scares me to hear Ive got pneumonia -although I go horseriding -I'm only around them for about an hour because I dont own one so dont need to do any mucking out or grooming or any other duties that involve being exposed to this sort of illness
Does anyone know -is it an ongoing condition like epilepsy/blood pressure etc or can this be cleared up after tests /medication etc & does it mean admittance to hospital because Ive got a big phobia of that -because Ive seen all of my family in hospital & Im the only one who has never experienced this & it frightens the hell out of me a thought that a doctor may say he/she wants to admit me
