Hi...This is my first time of posting so hopefuly will get it right. I was diagnosed with emphysema 10 years ago and have been of ambulatory oxygen for 6 years now along with fostair ultibro and neB's I have managed quite well with the odd exacerbation. That was up until 4 weeks ago and I have become quite breathless and was diagnosed with quite a severe exacerbation this has been on going since and last Wednesday I was admitted to hospital. I came home christmas eve armed with antibiotic steroids. I have also now been given oramorph to take at low doses to help with the breathlessness, I did take my first dose this morning whilst my respiratory nurse was here and found this to help quite a great deal . I was just wondering who else takes the oramorph and finds it helpful with the emphysema. Sorry post has gone on a bit.
