Re: Asbestosis
Jan 9, 2003
My boyfriend also has this as a result of being in the Navy and exposure. He recently was in a car accident and when they took the chest x ray it was so dark they had to redo it. they told him he has severe lung desease. he already knew that. Of course he smokes and wont stop. there is no cure for this and its very sad that while serving their country this is the thanks that they get. I dont think military doctors are very helpful as they cant admit to this happening. This is a really good site so maybe someone will help you. Our dr told me he will be useing oxygen and that they become nasty to live with as they dont get enough oxygen to their brain they become mean. My boyfried never had a pleasant personality but my dr said the burden of taking care of him will be on me. He wont listen and stop smoking. I hope you find the help that you need. Just go on the internet and put the word asbestos in there and it will bring up a lot of different things.
Good luck and God bless them all.
