Well, my wonderful doctor was in this morning and after looking at my x-ray we have figured out why I couldn't breath yesterday morning.
I have not one but TWO mucous plugs in my left lung along with a crap load of mucous in the base of both lungs. He thinks that one of the plugs must have been moving yesterday morning and that's what was causing my shortness of breath.
Now usually when I am admitted to the hospital and I get my x-ray done it comes back unchanged. Meaning that even though I was sick and needing IV's not much had changed on the x-ray from previous ones.
But this x-ray came back with 2 plugs and a crap load of mucous and that's a little discouraging for me. I have been working SO hard at pulmonary rehab and really trying to move around more and be active even though I need my O2 because I know its beneficial and even with all that I get sick....and not just sick WORSE than I was before. I hate that.
Why am I even trying the pulmonary rehab if its not gonna help?? Anyway...that's just my little rant. I have a lot of work to do getting this crap out of my lungs. Wish me luck, I will need it.
