i went for my pre-op assesment last week as i am due to have a cataract removed under general on 6th march whilst i was there i met the anaethatist as well as i have early stage COPD. he decided i should have a lung function test prior to op. this was done and then the
nurse said we want you to use this nebuliser for 5/10 mins with some medicine added then sit outside and we will call you back in half an hour. went back in and they asked how i felt with that and i said it was much better my results were much better with that. she said to get in touch with GP in a few days as they will be changing my medicine and needs doing before op. I saw the nurse at my surgery on friday and she prescribed the new med which i take once a day and it lasts 24 hours it is like a powder in a capsule. you inhale it the powder from a little machine however it is no longer early stage it is moderate this is ranked 0 - 4 and i am now on 2. this worrys me. then when i read on line it says it is emphicyma which is same as COPD and this worrys me sick. i lost my mum just under 4 years ago to lung cancer. i just want to feel better than i do right now hips and legs playing up pain everywhere and i just want to be NORMAL whatever that is.
well thats all i wanted to say
