I had back fusion followed by sepsis for six weeks. When I got mobile , I found out I couldn't breath. Had a lung test in April, capacity showed 70%.
Now last week I'm down to 52%. Surgery not an option. Too big a risk they say cause of half a lung and congestive heart failure. Two different university med systems have given me same news. What to do? Where to go?
Suicide? I'm tired of falling to sleep or passing out from lack of O2.
