Just want to say how good the Pulmanory rehabilitation course is.
I would recommend it to everyone if you haven't already been. It is a positive mix of small teaching sessions, use of excercise equipment with oxygen and Blood pressure measured before and after, advice on use of inhalers, visits to group from Talking health and other advice about the disease. It's helpful to meet with people of all ages, you even get the chance to be referred to a gym for COPD sufferers at a fraction of the normal cost. For those feeling depressed and unmotivated would be ideal to have the chance to socialise. The specialist nurse will even ask your GP to prescribe medications. Nothing is too much trouble and the team are very sympathetic but positive.
Ask to be referred as there is a waiting list.
