When this whole think started about 10 days ago I thought I was just over reacting to you telling me you were on 50 mg. when you got your PE and letting anxiety get the better of me. Then I had no symptoms for the next several days and all of a sudden this past Wed. I got short of breath again and then fine on Thursday but back on Friday.
I will bet the x-ray will show just a blunting of the tip of my lung again like the first time. For some reason I can tell when anything interferes with my breathing. I blame it on being so out of shape. My doc told me last time I shouldn't even be having symptoms with that little bit of fluid in my lungs. I didn't stop Sprycel until 2 weeks later and what a mistake that was. That's why I stopped today. I don't want to go through that again.
I even got my blood pressure and cholesterol under control because I read that could be a contributing factor. My HDL is 80 for pity's sake!
We can start something new together! Be sure and let us know how your appt. goes tomorrow.
You probably would get some relief from breast reduction surgery but I saw a friend in the hospital after hers and it looked like the most uncomfortable procedure ever! Of course, this was years ago and I'm sure they've improved things since then.
I am glad you got your butt back from Pittsburgh! That made me laugh!
