I was told 11 years ago that my life expectancy was 6 months. It’s been eleven years! I give honor and praise to God. I lost 120 lbs. which helped greatly. Meds worked as well. I’ve had a 60 lb. regain and can’t seem to get the scale to budge downward. I broke my leg and ankle 1 1/2 years ago and had a heart attack before that. I gained weight with each thing. My oxygen says aren’t as good as they were. I was recently diagnosed with emphysema although I have never smoked. I’m concerned my pulmonary artery pressure has risen again. I need to get serious about weight loss! I’m not anxious for a cardiac cath to see what my numbers are. I do know you can get better and have a better quality of life. I’m a living example!
I appreciate prayers for sure! I just got results of an echo which suggests lesser pulmonary artery pressure in the right pulmonary artery. I am so thankful. My shortness of breath is attributed to COPD which is newly diagnosed. My weight makes things worse. I’m working on that but it’s difficult.
Pray for one another...that is something we can do...if not prayer then send out good thoughts, at least.
