In part one of wild ride, I explained about some of the stuff that’s been going on for me of late, but the update was getting a bit long-winded, so here we are with part 2!
Over the last 6 months, my breathing has been getting worse – I have a regular irritating dry cough, and there are changes to my voice.
I’ve been putting off going to the Dr – basically because I knew I was getting worse, and didn’t really want to face that fact.
However last week it was finally time…
When I made the appointment, it was also planned that I would have an updated spirometry done whilst I was there.
So the day arrived, and I trotted off and did my spirometry, then went in to see my Dr.
My results weren’t brilliant, and my spirometry is now showing that I’ve gone from having a ‘moderate’ breathing issue, to it being ‘severe’.
My Dr advised that I needed to have xrays done, and that I needed to go to the city to see the Respiratory Specialist.
So I left with instructions in hand, and later that day went to the local hospital to have my xrays.
Not long after I got home, the Specialist telephoned me to say that they had an opening available on the March 7th – so I’ve taken it, and now need to wait to see what happens next.
Gotta say – I’m a lil worried – but am hoping for the best, obviously…!
