A treat ,,,,,, if I do well on next lung function tests

For 3 weeks now I've been going to gym five days a week for an hour ,I feel as if I'm back to my best fitness wise and health wise ,,,so far ,, I was expecting to be having more lung function tests in Dec/Jan.,,,but I had a letter this morning to say it will be November 11th when they are done ,.a bit of a shock I thought I'd longer to build myself up again ,,. So to spur me on ,,, to keep up my progress my daughter has booked us in at NEW HALL HOTEL AND SPA ,on the 24th November as a treat ( for hopefully getting good results ) , it looks fantastic,,,fingers crossed ,

I think you have done exceptionally well from what you have told us, and bringing the date forward should be fine as far as your body is concerned. You have worked so hard at it and you deserve good results. The Hall looks beautiful in a stunning setting. Everything crossed for you....and not long to wait either:-)

It's great to hear you feel you've gained some ground back Nanny, I really admire your stamina, you so deserve that treat.

I hope your results reflect your hard work but, don't get too hung up on the numbers because, it's like everyone on here says, it's how you feel, that matters and you know you've improved.

Well done you!!!

Hope you have the lungs of an athlete. Good to see you are trying to keep your health. I can relate. I have allergic bronchi pulmonary aspergillosis and bronchiectasis. Got it age 40. Changed my life. Now 49.

I am trying to avoid having supplementary oxygen ,that's been my aim since diagnosis,I send best wishes ,

Hi nan. It is a fight indeed. Do keep your lungs and muscles working. Vas we get older and take steroids our muscles weaken. The more muscle we have the more blood is pumped around and the heart and lungs have to keep their functioning. I only recently understood this as I thought it was cardio that is good for lungs. But I now do more body strength exercises. Just need to get over this chest infection. Funny how legs feel so wobbly with any chest infection. Sadia.
