Can lung function be increased?

I was told today by my specialist that I'm at 27% lung capacity !!! I've had bronchiectasis for years but it was not diagnosed until recently. But I also have MS and I am in a wheelchair please don't suggest I do aerobics. But if anybody has any ideas I would gladly love to hear them. Thank you x

Yes glad to be on too. I ask dr. Google and it said there are breathing exercises you can do. Like inhaling for 2 seconds through your nose and exhaling pursed lips for 4 seconds. And there's other ones too. I just Googled how do I increase my lung capacity. And then, Joyce suggested joining a singing group. Now that sounds like fun!

A singing group? If I joined a singing group I’m afraid I would likely be the only one left after the first time I attended. 😊

I really hope you enjoy it and also get some improved lung function.

Take care.

Is there a singing group near you especially for people with lung disorders? I go to one in my town and it is brilliant! I would imagine any group which does singing would help.
