Got asthma with partial reversibility on spirometry. Well-controlled on Fostair. Had it since I was a child (with a break in my late 20s to early 40s, now 50). Asked the consultant today if it is likely to keep progressing and become COPD and he pursed and wriggled his lips and then said "well it MAY not", if you keep taking your steroids.
I am now of course really worried. Any one else been told their asthma may progress to COPD? Anyone know what timescales we are talking about? I do not know whether I should start thinking about early retirement and doing my bucket list.
