  • Hi,

    Yes they did a high resolution scan with and without contrast. I was hoping it was a virus or something that would show up on a scan but according to the radiologist there is nothing there. There are about 80-100 photos in the report. When I went to the ER 12 days prior to the CT they said that they found mild bronchitis on the chest X-Ray…[Read more]

    Hi,
    I know the survival rate is bad. My pulse ox is always above 95% even with exercise but I still literally feel out of breathe and like I’m on my death bed. I don’t have a cough. Chest pain and I feel my throat closing on me. I feel tired from even bending over or brushing my teeth.

Yesterday I had an appointment and the doctor said he wants to c…[Read more]
