just back from the consultant. good news, no emphysema!!! yeh. bad news, ok ive got to get used to not so good news, so i will refuse to call it bad news. i have to see a bowel surgeon. for bowely problems im having, i asked if i could just wait till i see prof a, whose going to deal with my GI issues, alas no, he said he wasnt a surgeon. also due to the little blip i had a few weeks or was it a month ago? due to my pulse dipping to 36bpm i had to have an ecg which was ok for me. i was told just to fiddle around with the beta blockers if it happens again. he thought that i ended up in the hospital due to the low pulse, nope i just rode the storm out at home. also in the future there maybe a chance i need a pacemaker, oh im not even thinking that far ahead.
he seemed to know a little more about the condition so when i asked questions about why i had difficulty breathing he explained the collagen in my lungs isnt working properly, and the vascular side of things. at last he was being human. he also said just to go out and enjoy life, mmmm sounds ominous.
