Hi not sure if you remember but i was going to see how i got on with dropping my seretide 500 from twice a day to once a day because of some side effects has i did not seem to get breathles when doing exercise.
That was august 13 last month and i still feel ok even better believe it or not no pains cramp or huskey voise and my GP did say to try it and see how i go,, but i know its still early days
So what i was trying to say at the time was i think i only need maybe 250 seretide twice a day at the moment (if that) has i know we need to take advise and help from our GPs but we do sometimes know our own bodys has well.
I know i will need a stronger med later in my life but why take now if you dont need it and i have enquired about do the meds im on do they help stop infections and was told its more to open your airwaves to help you breath better and is a preventer (think peoples views on this may difa)
I know the winter is comming so a bit worried about that but will see how i get on and i am going to try get another spirometry test has last jan i was 62% funtion moderate COPD
have not smoked since then and go to the gym 2-3 times a week.
I know this keeps getting said but any new people who have just come on this site and worried because they have been told they have COPD if you smoke STOP right now and keep active you will feel better not cured but feel better after a while.
I dont want to upset or worry anyone but i am just saying on this post how i am doing and not saying people with COPD should do the same has me
