This past Friday, I had an appointment with my doc. He is a new Doc I decided to go with, since my old doc is moving out of the area. This was just supposed to be a get aquainted visit and a 'oh yeah, I have some scripts I need filled' kinda thing. But I have been plagued a very phelgmy cough for the past several days. When Doc asked if I smoked I said, yes. When Doc asked if there was a history a med issues in the family, I told him how my paternal Grandfather died from Emphseyma. He listened to my lungs and said, "You know, you have it, right?" I asked him what he meant. He then went thru the questions; Do you have a hard time climbing stairs? YES Do you sweat easily? YES etc....... So he then told me, he could hook me up to a computer to verify it, but we already know. Interestingly enough though, on my medical receipt he put down the code for bronchitis. So I have started taking Chantix and my quit date is this Saturday the 25th. Looks like I might actually have a cancer.
