I've added the the Categories - we are limited to the number of categories we can have. Hopefully the categories are representative of the issues discussed. We cannot have a category for every lung condition so we have gone with the most common conditions discussed on the community. The categories are:
COPD - all things relating to the treatment, management and diagnosis of COPD.
Pulmonary Fibrosis - all things relating to the treatment, management and diagnosis of the many conditions often referred to as pulmonary fibrosis or scarring - the Interstitial Lung Diseases.
Lung cancer - all things relating to the treatment, management and diagnosis of lung cancer, including mesothelioma and other asbestos related lung cancers.
Different lungs - all things related to the management, treatment and diagnosis of all the other lung conditions.
Breathing worries - for anyone who hasn't got a diagnosed condition and has worries about any aspect of their breathing and lungs.
Oxygen - anything to do with using oxygen, getting oxygen prescribed, oxygen equipment, arranging oxygen for holidays etc.
New/ different - discuss research trials and any other treatments not part of the usual treatment of lung conditions e.g. complimentary therapies.
Financial issues - for welfare benefits, fuel costs and other money related issues.
Humour - were all jokes and funny posts should be.
General Chat - a place to talk about anything not directly linked to living with a lung condition.
Please try and allocate your post to the most appropriate category - and please keep posts on topic.
