Results of the chest xray/

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

I got the results of my chest xray that I had done last week and it shows I have a "tortuous aorta" and a slight elevation of the right hilum with linear stranding to the apex. I'm not sure what that means, other than the tortuous aorta means my aorta is twisted and that is what is causing the pain in my lungs all the time. I guess it cuts off the oxygen to parts of my lungs and causes the pain. I get severe pain in my lungs throughout the day, and I have a constant tingling in the upper part of my right side of my back. They can fix it with surgery or by putting a balloon in it to straighten it out.

It would be great if I could stop this pain from happening off and on all day everyday:)
