Hi, me 1953. I had my first visit a couple of weeks ago and I must say that I found it very reassuring. I had already had a chest x ray done but had to have a physical examination and a spirometry test, then plenty chatting with the doctor who is referring me for pulmonary rehabilitation. Just a thought, I would have found it easier if I'd made a list of questions before I went. Good luck. XXX
