Good pm everybody, patricia 7 here. Sunday 31st of July 2016. Could you help me please? I have an appointment with a Consultant Respiratory Doctor in August. I was diagnosed with COPD December2015. Ex smoker 6 yrs, on Salbutamol/Tiotropium. Completed pr course just over a month ago. Was in hospital x7 days in May 2016, one other episode approx x8 weeks ago, no chest infection, started on steroids x7 days. I do not know what Stage I am at.I feel at a loss really, even at rest I was out of breath prior to being admitted to hospital. Chest xray clear apart from COPD changes. I dont understand why I become breathless. The second time no cough/cold nothing. Ist outpatients appointment since being out of hospital in May. I keep fit, I eat well. I am on my own no partner/children. I am 52yrs old. I have been checking my saturation levels, they are fine. I would appreciate your thoughts please. Thank you very much. Patricia7.
