When I was diagnosed in the UK with copd the nurse said I had the lungs of a 98yr old I've since moved to Spain and after seeing my GP here he referred me to see a pulmonologist I've had a cat scan and spirometry tests the conclusion is I havnt got copd but bronchial asthma , by the way the consultant changed my meds a couple of months ago and since then I've had no wheezing no coughing and no shortness of breath very happy lady but confused!!!!

Omg how confusing for you. I don't know if you are aware but there is also an asthma site on HU which might be able to help as well. x

It is confusing, what lung age have you been given now? I have heard that the care for c.o.p.d. patients is excellent in Spain, I hope you have settled in nicely 😁 huff xxx

Hi I've not been given a lung age and I'm settling in nicely though I do have bouts of homesickness but early days...my hubby says if I want to go back to UK I'll have to go on my home...erm that could be arranged lol

Did they mean Bronchitis, when they diagnosed you originally because, I think that just being told you have COPD confuses things. They should just say what you have is: Emphysema, Bronchitis...

No matter though Jeanie, it's great news. xx
