Today I had some PFT's done. I was wondering what they would be, I feel great but I have had some stuffiness and allergy type of symptoms. Still trying to figure out how the environment and elevation here in Oklahoma is gonna be for my lungs. My lungs LOVED Phoenix. I had the highest PFT's when I lived there! But today they were down a little but not significantly. My transplant center is concerned if there is a 10% or more drop. My results were:
FVC . . 3.09 liters. . 106%
FEV1. . 2.23 liters. . .87%
So then they gave me some albuteral and my results looked like this:
FVC . . 3.20 liters. . 109%
FEV1. . 2.36 liters. . .93%
So about where I usually am after a little pick me up from some albuteral. My blood pressure is a little high though, I'm going to monitor it daily for a week or so and see if it's actually high then call Pittsburgh and see what they want to do about it. It was 148/79 today! Bleh. Norman for me is like 120/70. I also got a new blood sugar monitor so I can track my sugars really good this week and see if they are a little high, cuz I guess it can effect blood pressure. Small maintenance things compared to my life pre-transplant. . .so I am happy to deal with them.
