Got a copy of my referral letter for RBH today! Woop!
But it gives test results etc (marks to specialist reg for mentioning air entry not just 'no added sounds') and for once they are not all normal (sad to be excited I know...). FEV1/FVC ratio is lower than predicted (FEV1 itself may be low at 3.25 but some things I looked up say this is normal for my height etc, others low). OK ratio is not that low (around 70%, things I saw say 80-85% predicted for me) but it's the first time everything's not better than normal. PF is 600 which is ok for me and of course way above predicted (predicted is 200 lower than my actual best of 670 - which they didn't put grrr - I'm sure I told them my actual best, isn't predicted just for when you don't know the real best?)
Just puzzled as I'd always assumed my PF is so good because of all the singing and oboe-playing...but I got the impression that should affect all the results not just PF.
Any other musicians/singers on here had this? I'm just curious really but it does seem a bit weird...maybe I will have to ask the RBH.
