I went to instacare and was told the go to the ER if it happens again since there were no other symptoms. Later that night it happened again. I went to the ER where they took an X-RAY of my lungs and did nothing else. Said “well we can’t find anything and don’t want to run anymore test so go home and stay hydrated.” A couple months pass, coughing up blood every once in a while thinkzing it’ll just go away on its own, July came and I coughed up more than I have ever seen come out of my body and I will attach photos and videos as well. I was so scared I didn’t know what was happening. I rushed to the ER, still spitting up blood and from there they did a CT scan and blood work and urine samples. They found bleeding in my lungs and ordered a bronchoscopy.
Now skip ahead a little if you don’t want to hear this part about the stupid doctor I had. He came in and said HE DIDNT WANT TO DO IT JUST BECAUSE HE DIDNT FEEL LIKE IT. We had a whole argument about that. Long story short, other doctors called him an idiot so I went somewhere else to get the procedure done.
New pulmonary doctor did find bleeding coming from the bottom part of my lung, too far to where his camera couldn’t reach. While I was in the hospital, my blood pressure dropped extremely low (as shown in the picture) and had doctors checking on me frequently but I was okay. Now, come September we have more tests to do.
Later September I had an echocardiogram done, which is basically an ultrasound on my heart. Results came back and they said I do have a valve that isn’t closing all the way. It’s a valve where it opens to pump blood to the heart and then is supposed to close completely so that blood doesn’t go back down. One of those valves doesn’t close all the way. Now he did say it appeared to be mild FOR NOW so before we do anything about that, we have other tests to do. I still have a breathing test to do and other test as well and still don’t really have many answers as to why or how I’m dying (idk if that’s literal or not, can’t imagine spitting up blood isn’t life threatening lol) and who knows, maybe I’m the start of a zombie apocalypse! (Joking of course). Anyway, the test and procedures are very expensive and I know 5000 isn’t enough but literally ANYTHING will at least help. Thank you in advance and I appreciate all the love and support.
