I underwent my second Bronchial Thermoplasty on October 4th, 2018. My recovery from BT 2 was a bit longer than the first procedure because my left side is weaker than my right. I was back to work though after 5 days off and back to my everyday life. I just had my third and final procedure done and being day 1 it has been ROUGH. my ribs feel like they're all cracked, I get winded just sitting up in bed but this is all expected and normal.

Update: 5 months out from my final procedure. I have had two upper respiratory infections and one right now as I’m typing this. I have been able to stay out of the hospital and only had to bump up to 20mg steroids instead of 80mg. I normally would’ve been admitted to the hospital until this passes. I’m still having bumps in the road but I would say I’m doing amazing! My first Michigan winter NOT going to the hospital!!!

I am 9 months out from my final BT! I have been OFF the prednisone since May 3rd and NO asthma spells. I have had several colds and upper respiratory infections and normally I would’ve been hospitalized due to flare ups but none! I just ran my first 5k this past weekend!! I have never been healthy enough to do so in my 24yr of life & it was the coolest and best feeling in the world! I’m also down 30lb from no steroids!
