I went for a follow up on my first Diagnosis of emphysema and all my stat's were more or less the same. The Dr who first diagnosed me was not a pulmonologist so I went to a very well qualified Dr this time that's a lung expert. According to her I do have light emphysema but shows almost no physical damage on the CT scan. She however said that I have many contributing factors that influence my stat's. My weight is 140 KG's, I have a massive hiatus Hernia and a naval Hernia. There was also a huge variation in my stats in 4 blows which seems to me kind of baffled her. The lowest was 67 and the highest over 80.
My question is can the Hernia's and my weight have a negative impact on my stats? I suppose not having a diaphragm will influence it as well? - Please advise.
