1 year check up

Just got back from Uof M medical center for my 1 year check up. Did a breathing function test, and six minute hall walk, and then a long talk with my lung dr. did very well on everything.

Breathing attack

Posted on December 20, 2012 at 2:53pm 11 Comments

I'm almost 9 months post op, double lung transplant. Every now and then, especially when I lay down, I have what I call "Breathing attacks". Episodes where I feel like I can't catch my breath and start rapid breathing and gasping for air. I can get it under control by deep slow breaths in through my nose, and breating out through purced lips. It's almost like I just forget to breath, and usually only happens when I try to lay back and relax. I'm just wondering if any of you other lung…

Sadly, I am leaving the group. It turns out It is not what I am looking for. There is very little discussions about tx's. Topics are scattered all over the board. There is no organization. Take care, I wish you all good health.

Hi, Jerry one of the options instead of leaving us a note that you are leaving is to start a thread of your own, or post things you are looking for as a discussion. We are always looking for new ideas, and that is what this makes this site so nice the participation of all members. However, we realize we are not "one size fits all" and thank you for your thoughts. We are always here if you decide to come back. Wishing you always the best.
