Sorry but this might be a bit long-winded I went to get the results of my annual check up yesterday and came out a bit shell-shocked.
Bloods all fine. Breathing very soft - don't know what that means.
Given oramorph to " relax my lungs " so that I don't cough at night. Not sure I want my lungs to relax. I want them to work not lounge about.
Told that if I have a really bad turn to call out of hours services and not 999 because they would just try to revive me and as my quality of life is rubbish anyway ......
Regards my previously mentioned low pulse rate, she gave me some physiological reason for it which went completely over my head.
Told that my constant belching and bloating is not indigestion because none of the remedies work and that it is because I breathe through my mouth.
Was surprised that there was no mention of oxygen therapy.
On a brighter note, I was prescribed Trimbow which they will get for me for next week.
I have to say that all this has left me feeling more than a little sorry for myself and has left me having to re-evaluate what I am going to do with whatever time I have left.
Thanks for listening/reading.
