Hello, my name's Wes. I was curious if anyone has had a Pleurodesis here?
Hi Wes, I'm Lonchell lovely to meet you. I have had a pleurodesis
how are you afterwards? I've been experiencing weird undescribable feelings in my chest sometimes and even stomach uncomfortability
I hope it's been better for you haha
It has been good for me up into 2018 when I caught pneumonia and developed a cough that just won't go away
Ahh that's unfortunate, i get a little cough sometimes , almost like clearing my throat. Did you experience the other things like how I described?
Did it take 4 months and you still felt odd sometimes?
It comes and goes
yeah honestly. I just am hoping after the pleurodesis it eventually won't be bothersome. I had my procedure in early May 2022, so it's been almost 4 months
Do you have alpha one anti-tripsin deficiency?
Ahh okay , did you check for it? Sometimes this causes lung issues like pneumonia and such, i have it, but not bad enough to not protect my lungs
Good morning Wes,
Ok, I will mention it to my paleontologist. Do I have to take a test like the (PFT) pulmonary function test
hahaha paleontologist 😂
No it's just a blood prick test
The PFT could help too
