For 7 months I have been off work with shortness of breath, (especially with little excertion)my legs are all puffy, I'm piling on weight weekly. My doctors have given me Pet, Ct and MRI scans, x-rays, blood tests, cardio tests and found nothing. They insist on looking again and again at my heart and lungs and I keep TELLING them that it is emanating from my upper left abdominal quadrant, but they just seem to be ignoring this fact. Ha anyone any idea what could be causing this? It is driving me crazy because I desperately want to get my life back and return to work.
I should add, 3 years ago I had part of my bowel removed in a cancer operation, but apparently all the blood markers are looking healthy.
