I had my foot surgery on monday and today had to have an emergency appointment with a physician. I'm short of breath, coughing, pain on breathing. he gave me a kenalog shot and antibiotic. He says I have bronchitis and irritated airway from the anesthesia. As I was waking up I was coughing my head off and told them my chest hurt and they said it was probably just acid from not having eatten. Aren't they suppose to check out chest pain when you are in the hospital? I mean, just before I went in the anesthesiologist wanted to back out of the surgery because of my pulmonary hypertension. Said it could cause heart failure and death. (lovely thing to hear on your way in to surgery) I've learned my lesson. NO MORE elective surgery. Just the stopping the antiinflammatory was probably enough to throw me in to pluerisy in the first place.
