Got my assessement date today!! Have to go next week for first assessment, then officially on the PR course. Rather aprehensive though as when I had 6 min walk & lung function tests done 5 weeks ago at hospital, they showed I had severe COPD & a lung age of 104!!! I had cancelled 2 appointments due to having a really bad exerbation but the hospital insisted I attended the 3rd appointment!. Saw my COPD/Asthma nurse who was outraged I had been told to attend when I was still so ill. She did lung function tests again & they were all well up on the hospitals results!! She said I haven't severe COPD, only moderate which is still bad but these results are now on my medical records & had been scanned in so she couldn't change them!!!! She did put a note on my records, bless her as OH want a report from my doctor. Hope it shows correct diagnosis!!!! It could mean me loosing my job & at the moment I'm feelimg well, still puffing but 100% better than I was. Really concerned that I was given a false diagnosis even thoughI insisted I was still very ill!!!!
