Hi everyone, just a quick update this week!
Clinic went well on monday, the doctors are really pleased with my progress. My lung function is up to 60% which the consultant said is fantastic at my stage- particularly given how ill I had got before transplant. They were pleased with all my bloods and took some more nebs away, leaving me on just 1 a day now which will hopefully stop soon anyway. More meds will stop after 3 months. The next step for me is to just carry on eating and walking etc and I need to make myself a bit more breathless when I exercise as this will increase my lung function more. It feels wrong making myself breathless now although will make sure I do! Im now walking completely without any aids, even on the stairs and I can now manage to sit on the floor and get up again (just about!).
This week has been really busy, sunday I went out for lunch, monday was a tiring day at clinic, tuesday I went food shopping and today I saw the GP, sorted all my old medication out that I don’t need anymore and cooked dinner for the first time in about 3 years!
It feels so good (although a little strange) to be out and about and treated like a normal person…. its a bit like the last few years haven’t happened! I am getting incredibly tired by each night though, its a fine balance between pushing myself and doing too much.
I keep being asked for a current photo, so at 9 weeks today post transplant- here it is….
I’m now looking forward to a weekend with Phil. Hope you all have a nice weekend 🙂 xx
