X rays negative

Happy to report that the xrays came back negative. Pnuemonia is gone and my lungs are fine. So much for that chronic problem the radiologist diagnosed. Doctors! Anyway, I'm feeling much better. Breathing is such a good thing! HA!

I don't know what it is but ever since my surgeries I am like a sponge when it comes to picking up illnesses. The wind can blow the wrong way and all of a sudden I'm sick as a dog. I'm just getting over a bout of Pneumonia. It started out as the flu and then very quickly went into my chest.

I absolutely hate going to the doctor with a "normal" problem. Especially a new doctor. I had to find a new GP because mine left his practice. Great, right in time for me to get sick. Whenever I go in with a "normal" complaint doctors freak out thinking I'm having some neurological event. I had a chest x ray which showed the Pneumonia. The radioiologist decided since I have a history of a partial collapsed lung(happened during a medical procedure while in the hospital in 2001), this must be a chronic problem. How could it be chronic if I never had Pneumonia before? Plus I haven't had a problem since. Not to mention, all x rays after the collapse came back normal- all healed. hum?

Anyway I'm getting better. Still taking the anti biotics and will get a repeat x ray in a few days. Can't wait to see what illness they give me this time!
