- Are headaches a condition of bronchiectasis (2 answers)
I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis at the age of 26. Which resulted in having a lower lobectomy of my left side. The doctors did genetic testing and a salt chloride test to see if I had Cystic Fibrosis. It was shown that I did carry the genetic markers for Bronchiectasis. And yes I was a smoker. Which only made the condition worse. Lately however, I have been having frequent headaches and pain in my left shoulder blade area that shoots into my right arm. I also suffer from hemopytisis, which is mild along with the copious amount of Mucus. I had x-rays done to see if the Bronch had progressed into something more serious like Lung Cancer. My PC doesn't think that it is cancer. Since I was told that if I am I pain that would not be a significator of Lung Cancer. But all I know is that My right lung hurts, along with the headaches and arm Pain. Does anyone else with Bronchiectasis also suffer these same problems.? I also have noticed blurred vision, but maybe that is just old age catching up to me and I need to have my prescription glasses updates. Also I am 49 years old. So if anyone can answer my questions, I would be very greatful thank you.

- Avastin and low potassium
I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.
This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.
I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?
No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
