Well further to my previous post, I have just had the results of my CT, full lung function and I am absolutley devestated to be diganosed with both Emphasyma and Broch. I am only 35 years old and I really do not know what to do. The CT scan according to my consultant showed 25% damage to the top of each lung (although the text on the scan said moderate Emphasyma) it also stated moderate Brochn at the bottom of my Lungs. My FEV 1 was really good 100% but something else was not so good and I am not so sure what it was something about gas exchange ? which he said was 76% and he would only worry if this was around 60%. I also have Sinitiuts and have been booked in for an opeartion to clear an infection in my nose. I am waiting for the Antitrypin result. I cannot stop crying I have a wife and we were planning of having kids but now I am not sure about this, I do not want to leave here a widow. I gave up smoking as soon as I got sick 5 weeks ago now I walk 1 mile a day and run 1.5 miles after work. I generally feel ok. I work up the city in London and I am terrified of everyone that coughs on the underground. I feel I cannot plan anything for the future as effectively I do not have one, I am confused by the ct scan showing moderate but my Spirometry results showing I am Mild/moderate (who knows) I am in a real mess and really do not know what to do. I just wish I could have my life back and start again.
Thanks for listening
