Hi all, hope you're all doing ok in this very long lockdown that seems to have become our new 'normal'.
To my surprise on Monday, I received a letter from respiratory medicine saying they are inviting me to undergo lung function tests in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, I had a phonecall from the same department and with an appointment for Monday. After a few calls and messages, a friend is picking me up to take me.
I don't know how I feel about this. I thought all outpatient appointments had been cancelled due to the pandemic surely carrying out lung function tests at this time would have an increased risk in infection transmission rates? It also makes no sense to not give B12 injections, but still carry out lung function tests.
Anyway, I am feeling nervous. I do not want to go near a hospital at this time, but am very grateful for the appointment, especially during this time. What should I expect? What tests are carried out and how?
