    Thank you so much for the people who have posted their experiences with BT, I was scheduled and mentally prepared to have my first procedure in a few days, they have moved my procedure back two weeks. I feel totally devastated after being sick for 25 years, yes two weeks feels like the end of the world. (only a person on heavy steroid use will understand) however I do not have control so now I wait.
    It has helped me so much to read the storied you share to help me get thru the next few weeks. My breathing problems are chronic and I never can get off the steroids, is anyone else like this and have you been happy with your procedure. It seems like I can only go off the Steroids for about a week or so then I get bad again, I try to stay active to help but of course if I push to hard I can not breath.
    I'm so hoping to just get off the Steroids and be active again. Thanks again for all the postings of your private experiences it helps so much.
