Hi again Everyone, I'm, hopefully, re-posting this as my previous post went missing!
Nothing remarkable about Visit 13, just the usual vital signs, temperature, blood pressure, sputum followed by a 6 minute walk, no bloods and no spirometry. The walk went well despite my osteo-arthritis in my right ankle, I wasn't short of breath or tired. The doctor listened to my chest and said I had crackles all over both lungs when I usually only have crackles in the bottom of my right lung so she discussed possible treatment when I've finished the trial. I might have to go on the ward to be treated by different drugs to see which suit me or I might have home iv's again but no meroperum because it was that that upset my whole system last time and made me really quite unwell.
I'm nearing the end of the trial now, I'm on a month off and then at Visit 14 after a thorough examination, ECG, bloods, spirometry etc. I will be given the 'real thing', no more placebos. I do that for a month then have another thorough examination, Visit 15, as in Visit 14, then a month off and then another visit, Visit 16 for a check up and that's it, another year gone!!
