Hi Everyone, I've just checked my posts and find that several are missing - hey ho, you haven't missed much but it is frustrating when I've spent time trying to keep you all up to date with the trial.
Anyway, Visit 12, yesterday, was very unremarkable, just the usual vital signs but no bloods, no spirometry. I did see a doctor who listened to my chest and reported the usual 'crackles'. I asked him about a pain I sometimes get at the bottom of my left lung and he said that it was probably the infected mucus which needed moving so I suggested I see a physiotherapist. She reviewed my medications and suggested I do the nebulised salbutamol first followed by my flutter and then all my other inhalers and then the trial drug. This made sense as the salbutamol loosens the mucus and then the flutter should loosen more so I should be able to clear my chest better. This may help some of you who are having problems clearing their chest, then on the other hand, it could just be old hat. Have a good day. Take care. Love Lizzy x
