I got told i have emphysema 2 years ago and had 3 lung function test and each time it got better after i stopped smoking i think mine is classed as mild. Any way to day i had a phone call asking why i had booked a flu jab appointment and i said well it's on my records why i have one or have lost them ? after a while i lost my temper and put the phone down.
So after that was talking to my wife who had to see the nurse today who does my lung function test and i said ask what's gone wrong, so she did and the nurse said because i don't use my ventolin inhaler i have been removed ? she i remember talking to your husband and he said he does not want to take it 😡 but i never all i said was i will use it if i need it and get out of breath plus she only give it me because i said when i walk up this huge hill my breathing changes and does for everyone who walks up the same hill and she said just try it that's all. But now she tells my wife i am meant to use it all the time and because i don't my lungs will progressively get worse faster ? is this true that everyone with emphysema are meant to use them and if so why did they not give me one two years ago i don't understand. Even my first lung function test they never give one to use in-between the test to like there meant to.
