Pulmonary rehab

Pulmonary rehab

Hi everyone :)

hope this helps someone. i attended the pulmonary rehab class near me in february and couldn't walk very far at all.(40% lung function).Kept up the exercises at home as and when i felt like it and have recently completed the St Barnabas "one night in a onsie" 10k walk,including a hill.i certainly wasn't the fastest but the sense of achievement is totally amazing.

So dont give up...little and often and only when you can..does really help :)

  • I don't think we have any Rehab Clinics in my area, if we have my Doctor's have never advised me to go to one, I loved to do workouts but am finding that some of them are too difficult now although I am quite agile , would love to join a group , more encouragement.

  • Congratulations, Little at a time comes to mind. Well Done, and to your friend also.
