This time the symptoms were more or less the same as usual: breathlessness, increased coughing, less appetite, more sleepy. However during last night I also had some chest pains in my right lung :/ I hardly ever get this and I never really know why I do. I've been getting it when I'm coughing hard, feels like a bruise.
Yesterday I went to Brompton for my appointment. My FEV1 had decreased to 69% from 84% and my FEV2 had only dropped to 94% from 96%. Sadly the hosp aren't too bothered about FEV2- otherwise they'd be really pleased with me lol! Sats had dropped to 95% too, still OK but not perfect. They've put me on oral medication so hopefully I won't be needing IV's for a while. However, amazing news was that my weight had gone up to 48kg!!!!!! :D :D I've never ever ever been this heavy in all my life, so happy! I proudly weigh 7 and 1/2 stones. It's so difficult for people with CF to put on weight and it makes me so self conscious of how thin I look. I'd love to be fat and actually have to diet lol :P
Other than hospital stuff, I also went to the London Pet Show this week. I loved it! My favourite section was obviously the Discover Dogs. Here are some piccys of me at the Pet Show.
