What should i have expected from seeing a consultant ? been diagnosed with copd for 12 years seen a consultant once in all that time until yesterday ,so i go in with my list of questions ,did i get the chance to ask ,no
As i said in a post Feb time the respiratory nurse wouldn't give me a spiro test ,said it wouldn't tell me or her anything !!!!! I asked too see a consultant so three months down the line i see him , im sat there puffing and panting like we do thinking to myself or well at least i will get an xray ,maybe C Tscan, blood tests and he would listen too my chest . Well i was wrong all he was interested in was getting me off the lowest dose of steroids that my doctor had put me on 12 months ago that had helped me significantly ,
would he listen no i mentioned the spiro as i was been pushed out of the door and yes in 12 months my fev1 had dropped to 20 from 26
the nurse took the results into him she returned and said , nurse will see you in 12months now i am sure this is an age thing ,but still think i should be treated the same as anyone younger .Did i expect too much from this horrible man ?
Thanks to you all xx
