I was seen by a consultant in April and having not received the feedback which he promised, I have just been to my surgery to find out if anything had been received there. Indeed they had received a letter the day after my appointment with the consultant. The letter confirmed "an FEV1 of 0/81 and FVC 2.41. Gas transfer shows an alveolar volume of 5.37 (118% predicted) and a reduced gas transfer at 33% of predicted after correction for lung volume. Surprisingly, her CT scan showed only minor changes of central lobular emphysema and not the sort of damage that was expected when looking at the lung function tests". Not sure I understand all that neither that "she would benefit from input from CRDS". Have googled CRDS but nothing connected comes up. I'm hoping that someone on here might be able to tell me what all this means!! Receptionist couldn't understand why I hadn't been contacted by the GP but "it's possible he hasn't read the letter'!
