My pulmo (specialist) advised me the other day, when we were discussing LVRS that my lungs were now at 283%, and the reason why my exercise tolerance was falling and de-saturation came so quickly. Here in Australia there are differing views in relation to LVRS and frankly I cannot find any helpful advice (except on here and usually from Penny). All I know is that I would like to be able to breathe again, but then IU guess we all feel that!!
That being said I'm in my 14th year with Emphysema and cannot help feeling that the quite strenuous exercising I have done in the past has had an effect on my hyperinflation percentage.
