Saw the new Pulm. He thinks Asthma predominate with obstruction. Thinks my problem more bronchospasm related. We talked different phenotypes. He kept mentioning triggers and my intermittent symptoms, ha, but they are all the time. Well what can you do, just not something that can really be measured, dyspnea, very subjective. Certainly does not bear out in the tests. Does not like my inhaler holidays. He also mentioned Xolair as something to maybe consider. Had my echo and stress echo. I went 16 minutes, eventually to a 20% grade at 6mph and then could not go on. Hit 93% of my max heart rate. The Cardiologist said no need to come back. Yes I am mild, and may sound like I do just fine. But I came from a place which is far above where I am now. So I suffer, much like all of you, just in my own mild way I guess. I rue the day I ever picked up a cig, but at least I quit, and not further destroying my lungs, more than I already have.
