Good Afternoon Everyone ! Wow ! what a year it has been for me with the ups and downs of this Lung Cancer stuff, being on prednisone so often has dropped my immune system into the bottom of the ocean..lol
I just got out of the hospital with double pneumonia, I went to the Dr cause I did not feel well he looked at me and said, you are going into the hospital You do not look good..no kidding.. so off to the hospital I go, got admitted and all settled in and then comes the nurse with all the good stuff to hang off the intravenous they pumped me with a very strong Antibiotic as well as more steroids 60mg every 6 hrs. yup I look like the moon with the nice round face gotta have a good laugh every once in a while. Then they woke me every other hr it seemed to give me more meds or breathing treatment (nebulizer) you can never rest in the hospital.
When I came home I had two prescriptions one for Prednisone to start 40mg, then ween off to none. The other was for an antibiotic can you believe with my health ins. it would have cost me $400.00 !!!!!! needles to say I called the Dr and he called in another prescription for me which by the way was free at our local Publix supermarket, I lucked out on that one.
When I go out now I make sure I wear a mask over my oxygen just in case someone sneezes or coughs and I always use the sanitary wipes they have for the shopping carts.
I am still pretty tired but this too shall pass with plenty of rest.
I guess that's all for now, any questions or commentss for me feel free to reply to this post.
