And been given and instructed on my Sleep Apnoea Night testing kit.
Got to the clinic and a lovely nurse came out and rubbed some gel on my ear lobe and said she will come for me in a bit. After few mins my ear lobe felt a bit strange and I was called though to be javalined in the ear to get the blood they wanted. With the joy of being on Warfarin it then took a lot longer to stop the trickle. Was told she was happy with that. Once that was over she asked why have I never been for a test before as my xrays and problems I have had to date really justify my lung condition be monitored? I explained that my GP insisted it was all my heart conditions fault even though my lungs collapsed in 2008?
More instructions weighed and height taken then put into a glass box given nose clips and told how to put my mouth around the mouthpiece. All sorts of breathing puffing holding breath etc. Once I had all those tests done I was taken to another room and told to lay on the bed and do some more blowing and sucking which did make me very dizzy.
all in al I was there for 90 minutes.
Asked for the numbers to be told (It must be a Coventry thing) All I can say is you are low! however when you come back with the Sleep Apnoea monitor if you want to wait I will tell you what the results are as we deal with that side ourselves, by the way what's your collar size?
The worse part is this was a good breathing day for me for some reason!
So I now have to wait for the 27th Feb for my results
