I have spent 7 years walking with a crutch/crutches with OA in joints,hip ,knees and ankle problems and operations and casting and got discharged from hospital before christmas and yey! got rid of my crutches.
I really want to start back the gym and swimming and yoga ,but a little scared to go as not been since started with asthma and not know my triggers other than cold weather and infections.
Im a little scared incase have a bad attack that flairs my lungs up for weeks but by starting slow and gradual build up hope will be ok.
So would like to know if this will help my lung capacity and improve my asthma and if exercise is a trigger in time with a slow build up will that improve.
love to here how you go on and ready to fight another battle after my 7 year one to strengthen my joints and muscles and now take control of my asthma.
edit( 2010 is a new beginning and so happy no more crutches)
edit ( just been on google and if you get any benefits you can get a recreational key to help pay for swimming etc) sadly I dont qualify
edit ( also Exercise in the community is free so ask gp or pm me for phone number as not sure if can put it on here)
