Went to my GP today because she wanted to try me on another inhaler to see which works best. She's trying me on Ipratropium Bromide. I asked her to give me a check up to make sure the recent chest infection had gone, thankfully she says it has.
I asked her if she could tell me what my lung capacity was and she started showing me figures I didn't understand. I asked if she could just tell me in percentage terms as I'd understand that and her reply was that she couldn't. Why, well she hasn't seen the graph from the spirometry test because the nurse that did the test has lost it! She says she need to see the graph. I know I was told that once I tried the inhaler the first test showed I had a 5% improvement and on the second test I showed a 20% improvement. All my GP would say is that my lung capacity is very good.
