thought i’d update you on my follow appt with my Dr today after upsetting results of spirometry test i had last week .
to start with she has reassured me i’m not going to fall of the perch & die in the very near future due to only having 30% lung function, and that only natural progression of age over time will alter that !🙏🏼
she was happy enough with the results not to warrant a retest .👍
my oxygen levels have never gone below 95 ( i check daily) . 👌🏻
she has also put me on tablets for my anxiety which should also help the breathing .
she without doubt advises & has now put me forward for the rehabilitation course , i will benefit so much from it just as you guys have all told me & thankyou for that !
she has even told me that i can fly which would be great after not having a holiday for over 4yrs due to me looking after my elderly parents but forgot to ask if i would need a “fit to fly certificate” & not sure if i would even get insurance ? but that’s for another day it wouldn’t be happening until i’ve done this course anyway .
i’m so relieved and very grateful to you guys for originally giving me the guts & confidence to revisit the dr when my breathing deteriorated & for then picking me up after my results last week when i was feeling at my worst and giving me hope .
thankyou so so much !!!!!!

Nice to know that you got reassurance from your doctor and feel more cheerful. You shouldn't need a fit to fly certificate. That normally only applies to people who use oxygen.
Thanks for the update and the good news xx
no thankyou again x
