Bombed PFT? Only 31
I'm newish here but am hoping someone might have some insight!
To keep things short...I KNOW I have Vocal Cord Dysfunction. Over the last 2 years I have been intubated close to 14 times and have been trached twice. Most docs just wrote me off as sever VCD because at first my O2 sats didn't suffer. As time has progressed, they have started to decrease a little per episode (maybe to low 80's). So they said, no asthma.
Well, just had a PFT and the pulmonary doc said she was shocked(this is at Cleveland Clinic). Apparently my FEV1 is only 27%. She said that showed severe obstruction. But, my nitrous test was 9 = normal. The TC was o only 55%. So she is ordering a CT, diffusion and volume test. She also put me onSingulair in the mean time.
With such a low FEV1...could asthma be THAT severe to cause such obstruction? I'm lost and don't know what to expect...why the CT? Is cancer possible?
Any thoughts...anything would be greatly appreciated!
