My story so far:
I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at a few days old and was rushed to Great Ormand Street hospital. Throughout my early years and teenage years, CF didnt really affect me too much. I still had tablets, nebulisers and physio but i was still 'healthy'. I had a course of iv's roughly every 2 years for 10 days.
It wasnt until I was 18 that my life changed. I had pheumonia which affected my lungs and meant that i lost 2 and a half stone in weight over about a month. I went from 50kg to 37kg.
Over the next 2 years, I struggled with regular chest infections leaving me in hospital roughly every 3 months for 2/3 weeks each stay and still battling to put on weight even after eating all day.
In December 2009, I had a portacath inserted into my chest which allows me to get easier access to veins when iv's are needed and it means i can do the iv's at home if im well enough. In February 2010, I had a PEG tube inserted into my stomach which would allow me to have extra feeding overnight to help put on weight. Lots of problems, which no-one had experienced before, happened with the PEG tube and it took until June 2010 to correct them. Since then, I have been improving in weight and lung function bit by bit and am hoping to look after myself as best i can.
