II must admit Lily-B, I like you am suffering from a flare-up which is stronger than the usual exacerbation, then receiving the usual treatments of steroids + antibiotics. As ever mrs mummy is so practical in her response.
Unfortunately, as in your case Lily-B, and also in the same scenario as Knico and others have experienced, the usual initial response of steroids + antibiotics has not recovered the situation. We are now left with a number of concerns but two in particular.
1. why haven't the usual treatments worked?
2. how do we get out of this new discomfort we have come across?
I am sure that as with our own version of COPD being a different experience, so too are our flare-ups different. It would be so good to know that this new flare-up was merely a short lived one and recovery just around the corner
I look forward to getting back into a comfort zone and so trust you others in the same unfortunate scenario are the same.
