No COPD. However, it seems I do have some damage. From my interpretation of the results (we meet with the neurologist on Monday), it seems my chest muscles are not allowing me to breath fully and causing some areas of my lungs to collapse. In my research, it said it was common after an operation. However, I haven’t had an injury or an operation to my lungs. The only thing I have is the compression of the muscles.
So, there we have it, my skeletal muscles are working to crush me. I’m my own garbage compactor.
I am awaiting results from a barrage of nerve and functional tests I took last week.
In other news, I was able to get my vitals to 96/52 pulse of 74 with O2 of 89. I was doing good. I immediately drank half a pot of coffee to get things going again. I’m just glad I woke up alive. It’s always good to wake up.
