Having been diagnosed with moderate copd 5 months ago after spirometry and test, I was referred to a consultant because my doctors still thought my breathing was too laboured for the moderate diagnoses. Yesterday, the doctor at the hospital said he could not see anything untoward on the scan, he thinks I have some wear on the lungs after 35 years being a smoker but that is all. He thinks that I have acute depression and anxiety and gave me some tablets and told me to throw away my spiriva! I was thrilled to bits obviously but how can my doctors at my surgery got it so wrong with all the tests? Had any one else had a similar experience? I had a spirometry test done at the hospital yesterday and have to go back on a month so I am hoping to be feeling better by then. This doctor I must say was lovely and really listened. Made me realise I needed to change my GP. X
