My hubbie has COPD like a lot of people on this site , the GP stated about 4 months ago he was at the start of the end stage
he has since then been on antibiotics and steriods several times, he hasnt actually had an infection but they hoped it would stop what they though was one brewing
his oxygen level is 98/97 at rest goes down rapidly when moving but just as quickly goes back up on rest he cant do much other then make a cup of tea and spends most of his time sleeping. some days he cant even put a weetabix in a bowl due to lack of energy
what i cant understand one bit , is how can he be so ill and breathless with oxygen levels like he has, how can he be border line end stage also???
we dont have a consultant and now we dont even have a community matron as ours left the area and the new one is not trained
i have no support in regard to this illness and where it goes to from here , what to expect or not to expect
Can anyone advise me please if they have experienced the same
