Because I didn't hear back, I asked for the X-rays to be sent to a specialist - he says Pebbles has pneumonia ( aspiration?) and have put her on 3 weeks worth of antibiotics, he said there was only minimal fluid on her chest - after the 3 weeks of antibiotics, he wants fresh xrays - he says the blur on the X-rays ( from the pneumonia ) is affecting the view of the mass - but he thinks the mass isn't a tumour - maybe heart failure or an uneven heart shape - now I have the worry of will she survive the pneumonia? X
Thank you so much - is it a high survival rate?
Pebbles is 10 next week and always been in good health, is a tad overweight and a little lazy, but otherwise has never been ill before .
Today is day 3 of her antibiotics, there's still no real change, her breathing is still rapid and she's coughing a lot still.......
I am just so worried about her.... Also, we have her brother, but pneumonia isn't contagious is it?
Thanks so much x
I've read survival rate is 16% but also read its 90% - I know you can't believe everything you read, but obviously the low percentage is worrying me silly...
If I'm reading you right - and other things I've read - I'm guessing it means if we successful rid the pneumonia we then have to find out what caused it, and that is when we know the real future?
thanks again x
