View Full Version : Oh well THIS is fun

I've been having some pulmonary problems lately and one of the potential diagnoses that I'm looking at is actually tuberculosis (gulp). Very odd that I might be consumptive! I feel like I'm back in the 1800's. Maybe I should get a white handkerchief and cough into it.

Anyway, anyone here been riding while on those lovely antibiotics for 6 months? How has it been? Have you been able to do what you want? How has your breathing been?

No experience to offer.

I am so sorry for you !

My riding friend is taking the antibiotics. So far so good.

Thanks guys. I had a negative test by one millimeter! Holy crap that was close. Chest x-ray today confirmed that I'm clean too. Whew.

I was going to say - the vacant sanitoriums might be great paces to ride your horse!

Thanks guys. I wasn't looking forward to having to go around to my acquaintances and say "You know that time I was coughing in the same room as you? Well..." That would make me popular!

I'm seeing a pulmonologist about this whole coughing up blood business. It's really irritating. Hopefully the new doctors will get me some answers!
