Hi just to give you all an update, I had my Lung examination today and had a consultation with a Lung Speciallist at the local Hospital.
I do have Bullae Emphysema, there is a lot within the top right lung and some in the top left lung however my Spiromity results were very good, this time a FEV 1 of 81%, last year it was 79% and all other complicated stats on the result were good.
I have been very lucky to have caught this in time, the saving grace is me stopping smoking when I was diagnosed back in 2010. I have been told it wont re verse it's self however it won't get any worse.
I am not on any medication and have no great signs of COPD, only get out of breath slightly when I really over do things. But I guess ive had-felt this for a good few years but put it down to Smoking.
The specialist has said it should not progress and for me to cary on with normal life as my lung function is good and I have no symptoms ect, keep fit and healthy and do all the good things for our body.
As we get older our lungs do age as well and can differ in fuction, I may get a bit breathless in old age due to this but the Bullae Emphysema will not spread or get worse, so I guess I have what I have and must get on with things.
I have been warned though that if I do venture back to the dark side of SMOKING it will progress and we all know what SMOKING does to us and others. I dont work in an enviorment where I'm exposed to dust-chemicals and I'm other wise young (44ish) fit and healthy.
So onwards and upwards, I'm off the celibrate now, going to book a big family holiday and enjoy the sun, I will miss the Scotish heatwave I've had the last few days (not).
Thanks for all who has supported me since I joined and I will pop in now and again to catch up on gossip and to see how you are all doing.
All the best
