Great fev results

Went for my spirometry today, was very anxious and praying for at least 50% fev1. My Dr told me sorry, I didn't make the 50% mark, but you did make 89.7%. Holy hell, I nearly fainted😁 so excited. I feel so lucky and thankful to be alive. I didn't make huge changes in my life style, just started going to the gym 3 days a week, no smoking and eating well. I blow up balloons everyday, take my Oxyrich and get on with life. Don't give up, small changes do work. 😊

That's very impressive, no wonder you're excited. I haven't heard of Oxyrich before, what is it - if you don't mind me asking. Think I'll be buying a few packets of balloons the next time I go out.

Thankyou everyone. My last test results were obviously not very good, as my Dr at that time just sat shaking his head and tutting " not good " I was never told, so this time around I got a copy of my test results to bring home. Yes I have mild emphysema, my breathing is in normal range and I will try and keep it there. Don't give up. Xxxx
