Hi. I’m not sure I should even be writing on here I don’t usually just bit confused,upset not sure what to do, I have been breathless for some time and decided to go to docs had an X-ray last year in March was told result was clear for copd and emphysema, didn’t think anymore of it. Although breathing was steadily getting worse every time I went to docs with other things I mentioned my breathing was told it was asthma and given an inhaler. Yesterday I went to pick up a prescription happened to wait to get it from doc,he said since your here we can do a review of your meds I’m not on a lot and nothing serious bit of reflux which is nothing really. Anyway mentioned the inhaler and how it didn’t help how I’m still breathless even after 16 weeks of not smoking which was unbelievably tough and still want one now think I always will but I’m not having one, my breathing hadn’t improved I think it should, doc asked what they all ask have you had a chest X-ray me yes it was clear, doc looks up results and starts telling me there’s no more movement in the lungs from copd I was absolutely floored I didn’t even know I had copd, so maybe I don’t have it and it’s wrong why would I be told clear and not sent for anymore tests if it now says copd lungs without any obvious facial lesions which I know is cancer so that’s good doc said it’s clear for cancer, has referred me to hospital under 2 week rule for breathing specialist and spiro test with nurse next week, I am at a loss so maybe I don’t have copd and my breathing is my throat or airway or something I don’t have a cough but have a 3 nearly 4 year old who keeps me active and I do walk quite a lot but get very breathless especially when I’m carrying the shopping, thank you for listening sorry for going on feel little better after getting that out, I want to see my son grow up and at 50 I already have odds stacked against me now this I just hope they got it right in March and X-ray was clear.
