I read your posts and sometimes respond but one thing was bugging me, how many of you have access to pulmonary specialists while I was effectively written-off by the DRI.
This week I see my GP to hand over the letter from DVLA saying I am safe to drive (after sleep apnoea diagnosis) AND to demand a referral to a pulmonary specialist (but NOT at DRI - they might have made entertaining TV but, in my experience, nit so good at patient care).
Without your comments, notes and responses I guess id just carry on muddling through ... not helped by nearly two weeks of being sat on by my own personal Sumo Wrestler yet besides the really poor chest no other signs to suggest an infection, really quite odd because my chest says its infected but sats & other parts say not?
I wonder if the sleep apnoea and COPD blur the edges? Read about sputum tests -never, ever had one and, until I found this site, didn't know they existed!
Quite looking forward to the GP meeting and sorting "stuff" out!
