    Default Biopsy results

    I don't have cancer!!! What I have is scar tissue. Caused by inhaling something. The something? Well as the good doc and I talked, I'd mentioned that the only thing that was radically different in my life in the past 2 years was cleaning out my mom's house, especially dealing with the birds. His eyes got huge! BIRDS?!?!? What kind of birds??? Cockatiels, parakeets, a parrot or 2. DING DING DING!!!!!! There is an illness that is caused by birds where the dust, fecal matter, etc from the birds gets into the lungs and causes nodules and scar tissue. In healthy lungs, it doesn't cause much of a problem but for someone with LUPUS.... BINGO!!!! On top of it all, I did have pneumonia earlier this year.
    Prognosis: 6 months to a year, my lungs should clear up and the scar tissue break up and disappear.
    Treatment: not much. Inhaler for the times I have shortness of breath and cough syrup at night so I can sleep.

    BIRDS!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY????? BIRDS!!!!!

    What a relief, I am sure you are happy with this diagnosis.
    Stay away from birds, you hear?
    I am very happy for you.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
