Some time ago I contacted the doctor in charge of the Lung coil trial at the RB, he said I needed to be referred. My GP agreed and I sat back and waited, in the meantime I had a appointment with my consultant who doesn't think it would be suitable for me.
Anyway my GP forgot so I had to remind him so by now it's October 5 months later, I have now been told the trial has finished but the are hoping to offer the treatment in about 2 years.
Gutted doesn't quite cover it. And then Friday I received 2 letters from RB about a CT scan and a lung function 3rd March and then today another one CT, LF and a consultation with the top man.
Not holding out much hope. As I'm sure my consultant knows the criteria for this treatment I know I wouldn't be suitable for lung reduction or valves as my Emphysema is severe and throughout my lungs.
Anyway others out there might be more successful so it's worth contacting them W.McNulty@rbht.nhs.uk
