I am a 50-year-old female, with a history of childhood asthma, that was virtually a nonissue in my adult life until three weeks ago. I had a recent stromal vascular fraction (SVF) adipose stem cell treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) with a cold on board. I felt tight chested then but not bad enough to take my Ventolin. A few days later, I developed a persistent tight chest and difficult exhalation that led to a respiratory admission for ?asthma or reactive airways. In spite of Prednisolone, Seretide, Ventolin, and Atrovent, I do not feel better. I am unable to work and doing very minimal things around the house because of the severity of the symptoms. My mother had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). I am frightened this is COPD and I am terrified actually. I am also scared that maybe the stem cells have caused an adverse lung reaction. I cannot continue to live like this. I have had a normal (computed tomography) CT pulmonary angiogram (CTPA), normal chest EZ-ray (CXR), normal echo, no growth in my sputum, and apparently a normal-looking lung function test that might be indicative of asthma (different people tell me different things). Please help.
