Been looking around this very informative and friendly forum, and hope that someone maybe able to advise.
I had a lung function test on Tuesday and was diagnosed with COPD on Friday, both the test and the diagnosis was undertaken at my GP clinic. As I entered my GP’s consulting room on Friday, there was another GP in the room that I was briefly introduced to. They told me they had the results from my lung function test, and started to talk about problems. I asked if the next stage was a scan so my chest could be examined. I was told that wouldn’t be necessary, as I had COPD, and there would definitely be scaring. The two Drs discussed amongst themselves what type of inhaler would be best for me. I was then told they would try me some medication, to come back in 3-4 weeks to see how I was getting on with the inhaler (Braltus). I was a little shocked, so I just sat there listening to the two Drs talking about me even though I was in the room. I was not given any more information at all; I have no idea how bad it is, what to expect next. It is just me and Dr Google. Does this sound normal?
