Just got Herself back from the Thoracic Medicine department after a hour long exam / chat post her CAT scan, blood work, and lung function tests. And the good news is it isn't the Big C - it's "Long Covid" Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) causing a thickening of the lungs and reducing oxygen take up. Which explains why her SATs are almost never in the 90s, and more often in the low 80s ... the X-Rays and CAT show loads of white lines throughout the lungs where the interstitial material has thickened considerably.

So the next bit is a "Bronchoscopy and Bronchoalveolar Lavage" (shove a camera into her lungs and wash'em out to see what is in there) in a few weeks, and a delivery of oxygen tanks tomorrow! Then we'll see if steroids can start to reverse the problem or not.

Looks like I got off pretty lightly - my Sats are 96~98 most of the time, and the dizzy spells seem to have worn off. Oh, and my hair seems to have stopped falling out!

This isn't "just a bad flu" - this really does damage to as many systems as it can ... Sigh | :sigh:
