Hi every one, I'm new to the site so I'm unsure how to go about things. I was diagnosed with COPD 3 years ago and have got worse as time goes on. I have been diagnosed with severe emphysema. I went for my spirometry check as I do every year and I have 27% lung function. I also had blood taken, I have to go back next week to have them redone as my white cell blood count was high. Anyway, the long and the short of it, is that I now have a Respiratory Nurse coming to my home on Monday. I wanted to ask if any one has a nurse who comes to them, im a bit worried as I don't know what to expect.
