Hi i am age 57 and i cannot beleive what my results were today after my first lung test 14 months ago then was FEV1/FVC RATIO BEFORE INHALLER WAS 62% AND AFTER UNHALLER 68% so lung fungtion then was 62%..
I went for my second test this morning and blow has hard has i could twice then the nurse ask me to do the same again and again then she looked worried scracting her head and i thought there is something wrong then she ask me if i would mind blowing into the tube again 2 more times so now that is 6 times.
Then i ask should i be taking my blue top inhaller and waiting 10 mins before i blow again and she said no i dont need to has my results are showing over 80% and this is normal.
must admit I got a little upset and she gave me a little hug and said well done it must be the exercise and swimming i do at the gym.
I know this sounds not right has i was moderate but its true and i cant believe it myself has i now have to wait 4 days to get the readings from my gp.
I cant help thinking that there will be a letter come in the week for me to go back because the spirometry readings were wrong.
anyway you nice people keep up any exercise you can do and stop the smoking if you are.
I must admit the only feeling i still get with this is when i talk my voice sometimes will stop just like when you come to the end of your breath so have i still got COPD just dont know now but good news anyway
