    well it wasnt the news i was hoping for :( im still a bit upset tbh.

    the trial drug ive been on for the past few years has not been working as well as they would have liked to they are taking me off of it, one good thing with that is it will relieve me of the constant coughing, which got me down and made me really breathless as well as make me vomit after too much coughing.

    so now i have to have a new drug which is injected, ive got to have a tube permanently sited in my chest, into a major vein. im still trying to be positive but living with the news that this condition could still kill me is always there at the back of my mind no matter how i try to bury it..so if you have a spare bit of the magic dust i would mind some plz :D

    So sorry to hear this Mick.

    I'm sure the shock is hard to take but we're all going to go at some point Mick and worrying about what if's, won't help - you are getting the treatment you need and now you need to try to enjoy life while being careful the way your doctors have advised.

    I'm sure you'll be around for many years to come and you'll be your optimistic self once you adjust to your new treatment.

    Take care Mick

    thx sandra....the shock was a bit overwhelming really, and now im even more nervous, ive just had a call from the hospital.

    what this new drug entails and the equipment

    the catheter thats inserted into my chest goes in around 16cm, 160mm or 61/2 inches in old money. then there is a tube that connects to a motor that drives the prescribed dosage of the drug into my body constantly 24/7, 365 days a year, so no chance of me missing any. the size of the motor is around the size of a mobile phone, but i forgot to ask how big the drug carrier is :( to say im nervous of having this catheter inserted is scaring the c**p out of me. was told yesterday i will never be able to go swimming, so god knows how i will be able to take a shower or bath again i havent a clue. right now i feel like my life is just being taken over by this condition :(
