Well, here we are nearly at the end of the trial, I am now on the 'real thing'!
Visit 14 was a very long one, I had a full physical examination, a 12-lead ECG, lung function (spirometry), 6 minute walk test, urine sample and blood test, and then the study drug given and my lung function checked by spirometry 4 times over a 2.5 hour period. I then had a 50 minute drive home so you can imagine I was pretty tired by this time - I left home at 10.00 a.m. and arrived back at 4.30 p.m. I did manage to get some lunch at 2.00 p.m. but it was a busy day.
I have been on the real drug now for nearly two weeks and there are no significant side effects, just some disturbed sleep because I am restless but a quick walk around the house and back into bed and I'm away again.
So my last visit is on 12th October followed by a telephone check up a month later.
Bye for now and I hope you are all keeping as well as you can. Take care, Lizzy x
