  • Hi judith, not good you have to wait till March for your scan results. Things must be looking flush in your NHS area for you to be referred for PR before diagnosis. Click on the link below for some PR information videos:

    also if interested, just type pulmonary rehabilitation into the search box top right hand side (in the green band) for more discussions about PR (pulmonary rehabilitation.)

    Best wishes BC

  • Thank you i will do x i know i think i was expecting to know he dismissed the blood test bnp gp had done so whats point in doing them??? Bit more waiting yes

  • Keep fingers crossed for good results, many different blood analysis tests, no doubt the specialist doc wants something more tested based on the results of other blood tests.

  • Well he didnt dismiss the link between my rheumatoid arthritis and my lung probs as the four years prior i had elevated alt ...whuch medics just asked how much alcohol did i drink rheumatologist told me that the high alt was inflammatory driven ... im a mystery heehee just want to know what im dealing with so can prepare . Its not really good to be off work for three or four months each winter . Thanks judith x

  • That is good, there is too much evidence to indicate ~RA affects the the entire body including the lungs, do hope the inflammation can be controlled for you. Look after yourself and hope you are feeling better soon.
