Had a bit of a set back last night. I have done nothing but cough and struggle to breath for 2 years. Got diagnoses of copd stage 2 with 54% lung function a couple of months ago. Gp put me on mucodyne 3 weeks ago and within days felt so much better it was unbliveable. Every one was noticing how well I was and I felt almost like a new woman. Last night had so much mucus on chest had a coughing fit for over a hour and really was struggling to breath. Was so breathless could not even get off the sofa to walk to the loo and am ashamed to say I wet myself. My son had to get me clean cloths and help me get dressed. I had took 6 puffs of ventolin in 40 mins but things where getting no better so had to get ambulance people as my oxygen levels had been on 92 for over a hour. Ambulance people stayed with me over a hour and oxygen levels did go back up to 96 in the end. Amblance people a bit taken aback that I was not under a local respiratory team and have sent urgent email to my go about this. Talked to doctor on the phone today who said he was putting my case together to get me under a respiratory team. I am not feeling great today peak flow down to 230. Just so feed up as was doing so well when I see gp yesterday afternoon he told me to half my dose of symbicort.
