I’m literally sitting here fighting for each breath I take. I’ve been on the phone with three different doctors the last two weeks trying to get one of them to make a decision. We’re all in agreement that we assume that my CML meds are causing fluid to accumulate around my lungs. The problem I’m facing is finding a doctor willing to take responsibility and assisting me to drain the fluid. I first contacted my oncologist thinking he would take me off my drug for a few weeks, he suggested contacting my pulmonary doctor. My pulmonary doctor suggested for me to see my cardiologist. I contacted my cardiologist and he suggested that I spend the weekend in the hospital. I refused that option because my daughters were coming in for the weekend and that’s the last place I wanted to be. So, I go see m cardiologist tomorrow at 3pm. What the hell he’s going to do is beyond me. The problem is not my heart it’s the fluid in my lungs. I’m so put out right now I can’t think straight.
I so hope it gets sorted out for you!
By now you’ve probably had that appointment. Hope everything went well. I can’t imagine not being able to breathe.
