appointment update

Hi Everyone!!!!!.........Thankyou all who replied to my post yesterday and for you advice and concern...the appointment was better than expected..........doc was in a good mood......he said that my blood tests were showing signs of infection so hhas given me antibiotics to clear that and also another inhaler ....Bricanyl........to be taken in between my Symbicort, and is also arranging with the practice nurse to do a spirometry test and wants to see me in a month again. He said that my blood tests didn't indicate anything wrong with my heart or any reason that i should lose balance and had a brief look at my swollen ankles. He also said that he was treating me for copd and a gastro thing but neede the spirometry results to confirm his diagnosis. He has been unable to do so this far because of my cough. I don't know, but things seem to moving on a wee bit, but i would dearly like some relief from this as i get so despondent at times and was a lifelong depression sufferer before this happened and have taken regular meds for it for years..Perhaps after the spirometry test i might be referred to a consultant should it show signs of significant damage. Thanks once more for your replies.............i don't feel alone with this now. Gav.
