Restrictive Lung Disease??? Hope my surgery isn't cancelled
This is my very first post. And im hoping you can give me some advice, or your thoughts....i am scheduled to have gastric sleev on the 23rd. Did all my tests. Had a pulmonary test yesterday and the dr said i expel only about 56% of the air in my lungs. My o2 sat was at 98%. But he is having me do a PFT on the 15th ( the soonest appt available ) and i am just soo scared that they might cancel my surgery. I have shortness of breath when i walk upstairs, sleep apnea, hypertension, and gallstones. I am 116lbs over weight and have been overweight forever. I have an 8 year old autistic son that needs me and i want to be healthy for him. HELP! im soooo worried!
