You're doing better than you think. Small steps, remember?

Try asking the district nurse to lend you a cushion to relieve the pressure on your sit-upon. Sue x

Hi I am worried about your weight loss. Something soft to sit on is at best a short term answer. Have you spoke to a dietitian about gaining some weight. I had a very low BMI and felt awful. Just 7 lbs made a massive difference to how I felt. I know it's not easy to eat when you are in pain and tired but good nutrition can make a massive difference to people with COPD.

Hi. It is worrying the weight I am loosing I am eating more than I was in fact I am eating in the middle of the night. Biscuits and bananas on bedside table in fact it is in middle of night that I get really hungry don't know if it has to do with lack of sleep my body clock must be a mess .My husband went to the dodtors surgery over a month ago and was told I would have to go to surgery .I couldn't because I didn't have ambulatory noxygen or a chair then .When I did get them I was in hospital with infection when I came home matron phoned doctors and she said she sorted it just found out they still need my BMi the matron coming on Wednesday so I going to ask her if she can get it sorted i have to think of something filling to eat before bedtime but being awake most of night it. Difficult I am glad you have gained some weight when I think of all the years I spent trying to loose weight and now I wish I had it it is very uncomfortable and i think makes pain s worse cause no padding

I get supplement drinks, I have 3 a day which is about a third of my Calories. OK the taste is not brilliant but they also give me half the protein I need which is important to gain weight.I hope you feel better soon.
