6 months off for good behaviour!

Went to the hospital today to see my consultant. I had the full works, xray, spiro everything.

Well get this oxygen level 98 yes 98! everything else no change from 8 weeks ago when my medication was changed but more importantly no more deterioration and I have had no flare up in that 8 weeks I couldn't believe it and neither could he.

He said he was expecting a slow down but a stop incredible so he asked what else I had changed and I said that I had joined this forum and that I had started taking vitamin D and using a SAD lamp and of course the change in medication combined seems to be working. He then said if I was happy with it he would give me a break and I need not go back to see him for 6 months.

So guess what I agreed and turned and told him that with luck when I go to see him again I may even have started pole dancing I am not sure how he took that but heyho that's my humour LOL

Mind you I wont be disappearing from here for that 6 months so tough you are stuck with me and if I can get my mind sorted there will be no stopping me

I am happy, happy, happy

as anyone that reads my copd blog will know I am a big advocate of a vitamin D supplement to maintain health. Research has shown much illness is a result of low vitamin D levels in the body. Due to the very wet and dull summer I said to my wife I was expecting all types of winter illness to be well up on normal due to people having very low vitamin D levels. And as we know. that has turned out the case. My wife and I take a 5,000iu capsule winter and summer of D3 and even though I have very severe copd, and come across quite a few suffering the winter bugs, neither of us has been infected. Good luck to you. And great news you are keeping from getting worse. Long may that be the case:-)
