This Wednesday is my clinic appointment and I am looking forward to it like no other. I think I am due for some IV antibiotics. Going into my surgery I was healthy and I am glad I was where I was. But coming out on this side, I just can't recover those days where I couldn't cough much and it pooled in my lungs. I am curious to see just what my FEV1 has dipped to.
The shortness of breath is bad. The need for at least 3 treatments a day is strong. And my energy is non-existent. This past Friday I had my 3rd dance lesson and I coughed the whole time. I actually had to explain to my instructor I have a lung disease and that I am not contagious, nor about to keel over (we hope lol). About 30 minutes into the 45 minute session I was done, but I forced myself to complete it and then passed out on P around 7pm for a quick power nap. Literally I was laying on his arm lol.
Today we went car shopping and it completely drained me. And we only visited 2 lots! Happy to say the second lot we purchased a vehicle (Mazda CX-7). So we had to hang around to do all the paperwork. I was just so tired I could have curled up on a bench and slept for hours.
I will be sure to post an update on Wednesday after my appointment!
