Ain't that a kick in the head?

    I have just been told on Friday that I most likely have asbestosis.I get the C.T. Scan on Monday A.M. & then back to the Dr. on Wednesday.I have kinda expected it but it still leaves me in shock a bit.

    Love you mate.
    In a manly way, you know what I mean!

    Thank you everyone for your support & concern.The Dr's report was better than expected.The asbestos is quite a low level but we will need to watch it.Emphysema certainly.It's causing most of the problems but it's manageable.I feel like a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders.I'm not scared of dying but I worry about my girls.So many of you have shown that you are true friend.I am grateful.

    Yeth Roy.I thought that'th what you meant.:)

    YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF FROM THIS MOMENT ON, Tommy! Many prayers have been answered today. You are loved!

    That's lovely Phyl.It means a great deal to me.Thank you so very,very much.

    That's not very good news for sure, so you can hardly be faulted for feeling less than sociable. Hopefully, there is help available to ease the symptoms. You are in my thoughts and prayers Tommy and I know you'll let us know what's happening when you are able.

    Good Luck,Tommyh My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

    Hope all goes Well on Wendsday Tommyh,I found out about 2years ago that i had C,O,P,D, but with speciel  exosize,things are not to bad with me ,Best of luck,Den,

    The long time members of this forum love you Tommyh.  


    we'll get you thru this, Tommy

    You'll be in my prayers, too, Tommy. Truly, truly hope your diagnosis will be something treatable and temporary.  :(   Very sad.  If there is anything I can do for you and your family, let me know.  

    Gosh. What a blow Tommy. Lets hope it is not as sinister as asbestosis.Good Luck for Wednesday.


    Thanks Pyth.I'll keep you posted.

    sorry to hear mate,,but you still have more tests to do,,lets hope you get good results,,keep us posted mate,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Good luck on Wed Tommy, will be thinking of you, hope the news on that day is better.

    Hopefully everything goes ok. You are in my prayers. <3 <3

    That's some tough news Tommy and scary too. I wish you the best and hope that your next post is to say that what they thought might be asbestosis is something similar according to the symptoms but not as sever and is easily treated with antibiotics or something. 


    Thanks Colleen.I hope so too.I haven't been too sociable the past couple of days.Thinking about how to get my affairs in order for Maggies sake.I'll know more on Wednesday.I'll keep you posted.

    Take all the time you need Tommy. This forum is not going anywhere. This is a heavy weight you bear right now. I doubt anyone will expect you to be overly sociable. You do not need an excuse if you need to just be here but not talk.

    In your lungs ? Did you work with in plastering walls ?



    Yes in my lungs.I worked with it for years before they told us it was dangerous.

    That happened to my husb's brother, too

    look at and try to talk to owner of: cocoon  He has things that cures everything.  i have seen people in my family listen to his recommendation & disease disappears.  i have used him too. he offers phone consultations. his name is stephen h.  i'm praying HEALTH for you. Love the part that's sick and spend time imagining it well, picture that.  years ago i was very sick, a chiropractor, Dr Flynn, told me to do certain things.  i did them and became totally well.  stanford doctors told me it was a miracle, plus i took no drugs, that's how i know how the body can heal if given proper environment. stephen is an expert in this area.  i have been taking his advice for over 20 years.  best of health to you!!!
