Health Update: Bronchial Thermoplasty
My third and final bronchial thermoplasty was on Thursday. The surgery went well, except for one minor complication. My doctor had difficulty getting the probe into my upper bronchial tubes which caused some bleeding (which was coughed up the first 24-36 hours after the surgery) and extra discomfort. Other than the extra blood (which really was more of a pain than anything else), this surgery has been easier than the last two so far. I'm still not doing much, but I feel less fatigued than I did previously and I really haven't had that many full-blown asthma attacks compared to the previous two times.
