Hello everyone.

Went for my annual spirometry test yesterday after being diagnosed May 2012 with moderate C.O.P.D. with lung function of 53%.yesterdays result = 60% lung function.An improvement that my doctor described as "fantastic".this improvement was achieved by me packing in smoking 60 cigs per day & exercising 4-5 times per week I.E. walking on treadmill & swimming.So some of us can improve our situation.I certainly feel a lot better than i did 12 months ago.Take care all best wishes x :)

  • Good news! :)

  • That is great news, really fantastic. I'm due my second spirometry in June/July and I really hope I get the same sort of result. When I went last year it was 55%, I had already given up smoking, but not for that long and I have since joined the gym doing cardio about 3 or 4 times per week.

    My wish is that others ( those that are able to do so of course ) realise that we can feel a little better by doing a little exercise & saying bye bye to the dreaded weed.If i can pack in smoking,believe me anyone can.Best wishes :)

  • Just read your blog, I'm a bit late sorry but what great news, there is hope out there then, well done, you must be so pleased, I recently started PR and I do feel so much better after only 3 weeks, I do some of the exercises at home as well, I have met some great people too, I am thinking of joining a gym too, you have made my mind up for me, good luck for the future.

  • That's some achievement pedantic, I am quite anxious as my next Spiro is in 2 weeks and although I have done all the right things I am not too hopeful. And I don't, know why.

    But pleased for you as it gives me hope. Take care Adrian
