Hi thought I'd give an update...brief story of what happened for those that don't know. Hubby is a firefighter he was at a very bad fire in June last year (Grenfell) at around the same time as Grenfell we bought a cat. Around this time hubby started having breathing/coughing problems that seemed to be relieved slightly with antihistamines etc.....things got worse as the months progressed...by end of November beg of December hubby had a Spontaneous Pnumothorax, given chest drain, antibiotics etc, scans showed a bad infection etc. He finished the anitbiotocs and slowly has made an improvement. (Rehomed the cat too) we though it may have been caused by either an allergic reaction to the cat, or Grenfell or accumulation of both. Anyway leading up to this hubby has not been in the best health he has out some weight on etc and his diet hasn't been great lately too.
He has since been back for his follow up at the hospital where he was rescanned and the hospital were happy with the results and happy for him to return to his fitness routine and start the process of returning to work. He has also been back to his work occupational health people where they discussed his results and discussed his return to work process. As he is a firefighter he can not just return straight away. He hasn't done ANY fitness since November and says he feels better unfit at the moment. He is trying really hard and had made changes to his diet and is trying to improve his fitness. The fire brigade have put in place for him that every Tuesday he does a day of fitness with the firbrgafe and he is also booked for a whole week next week with the fire brigade rehabilitation centre for intense rehabilitation. He is also on light duties the rest of the week until around easter time when they will review when he can return to full duties. I do keep worrying (I suffer with anxiety) he does seem unfit and I'm worried he won't get his fitness back, I'm worried about him returning to work, I keep worrying something more is wrong with him, I'm worrying about everything little thing he does, ive convinced myself he has COPD too and really worrying 😔he does seem very very slightly breathless sometimes but then I don't know if this is normal as he is carrying a bit of extra weight around his tum (which he is working on) I take health and fitness very seriously I work as a Personal trainer so to me it worries me more than normal. I have of course been helping him and advising on his diet etc. Sorry I know is I'm rambling just have no one else to vent too .
