showering with copd
This is kind of funny. I have gotten out of breath in the shower for a long time, so when I got oxygen I figured if I took it in the shower with me it might help and it did. Then I quit smoking and don't use the oxygen a whole lot during the day so I debated whether or not to try a shower with no oxygen. I finally decided not to take the chance. I took my shower and got dressed and when I left the room I realized my oxygen tank wasn't even turned on. That made my day

I had hoped, stumbling on this support group, that it would be a place of shared experiences, and suggested coping mechanisms. Sadly that is not what I am seeing. I don't know how doom and gloom and sarcasm contributes to the strength it takes to live well with this disease. Sad.
Thank you. I'll write you shortly. Gotta buy some paper :)

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
