Hi, my father is 77 and up until this year had been relatively fit and well. He started with breathless on exertion but now has it as soon as he stands and walks a few steps. He was admitted to hospital in May after very bad episode, was in for 3 weeks and had numerous tests. He now has ambulatory oxygen, recent CT scan clear but spirometery test indicates problem. At hospital appointment yesterday Doctor says he fully expected to see Fibrosis and that he’ll just see Dad again in 4 months!!
I’m at a loss what to do next, Cardiology have ruled out any heart issues.
MRI scan has showed bulging C3-C4 disc bulge with mild cord compression and myelopathy.
His oxygen levels can drop to under 80% when standing and moving without using his oxygen!
Any advice would be very appreciated 🤞🏻
