This post is kind of long and not really weight-related, but I felt I needed to vent my worries.
I have severe, chronic asthma and take lots of medications. At my last visit, my pulmonary doctor said he'd like to do some further testing, including a CT scan, a breathing test (I've had these many times before) and possibly schedule a bronchoscopy to figure out why I'm not breathing better with all the medication I take. Today I see him for a review of the tests.
I'm not really expecting any big news. I know my body pretty well, and I don't think anything's changed much, breathing-wise. But here's the weird part-I'm almost wishing he'd find something new that's wrong with me, so that there would be a new type of treatment! I'm embarrassed to say this, but it's how I FEEL. I've been told that the meds I'm taking are all that are available-the best, newest, out there. I trust my doc's opinion-he's not the first I've been to.
I've been waiting for/dreading/anticipating these test results for a few weeks now.
Any thoughts or advice out there? Thanks
