Hello, I posted a few days ago about my partner. He has been ill with a bad cough, breathlessness and night sweats since Christmas. He's now on his third lot of steroids and now has a steroid inhaler. His meds finish on Thursday. He is going for a breath test to see if he has copd, on Friday. He's had a clear x ray. His gp did say he'd be very surprised if it wasn't copd.
He's not been too bad since taking steroids but today he's struggling with breathlessness after helping to load a lorry (he's a lorry driver) and his cough is not good again. He's worried and I'm trying to see the positives. Saying I'm sure once they find out he'll be put on better meds.
I'm finding it so hard and am scared what level he'll be at and if it'll aways be like this. No idea when he'll get the results though the doc did say if it's severe he'll see him straight after.
Will it aways be like this? Will he always be so ill? I'm so worried about his future.
