Any fellow lung disease suffers out there? I have histoplasmosis (aka Ohio River Valley Fever, Mississippi River Valley Fever. I had the lymph nodes in my chest removed on March 6, 1/2 of my lung on March 16 and just got out of the hospital last night. Found out the medicines I take for my Crohn's disease was counteracting the drugs for the lungs. For the last 9 months the histo has grown uncontrolled all because the pulmonary doctor thought he could "handle it" and didn't contact an Infectious Disease Specialist. I have to have another PET scan this week to make sure it isn't turning to cancer like it did in March. I am so FRUSTRATED! They are waiting on more test to see which of my organs it has infected. Right now my main symptom and what sent me to the ER is chest tightness/discomfort and shortness of breath. As long as I sit and don't do anything it makes it a little better but I am in my 40's, a mom, a full time job, house, etc. I can't just sit. I have been saying for month's that my chest hurt and once again was told that it was a cold, asthma, bronchitis even with my history. The doctors said my 100 year old house and the area we live in are also affecting it. I guess I need to hit the lottery, move out of the area and give my house away. Not doable as DH and I work for everything we have. Thanks for letting me vent.
