Hi Everyone, Had my visit this morning from the Respiratory Team for the 1st time. Although my Spiro test, Which was done before my pacemaker op. Said FEVI 1 of 39%. Which is severe obstruction, Today i am not showing any signs to warrant that reading. But said thats what they have to take it as for medical record reasons. But told me i dont need my steroid inhaler Ellipta 92/22. And dont feel i need any help at all at present. So all in all good news. Wait for my p/m check up now. Then see what they say about Warfarin. They are talking about me having. Hope all keep well. And have a good weekend

Thank you Lovely couple. Yes i am lucky. And know it. Got my 1st pacemaker check up. 2nd of October. Arm swelling going down now. Just hope the clots gone as well. Had blood results from them doubling my tablet last week. Thats normal. Just got to sort out with G.P. that they want to put me on Warfarin now as well. Have a good weekend. Love to you both xxBRIAN

Yes i am izb1. Thank you. I was more worried about the COPD reading. Cause my Fevi1 was 39%. And severe obstruction. But since my pacemaker op. All thats gone. No breathlessness at all. Guess with a heart rate of 21 to 28. Not enough Oxygen was getting around my body and Lungs. Hope things are not too bad for you. Thanks for your thoughts. And enjoy the weekend. BRIAN
