Breathing Tests Went Well. Mattcass

Hi All, Everything was better than OK my tests showed I have clawed some Lung space back on my own not a lot but better than the other way round, The respiratory nurse was excellent she could see I was struggling with my RA and the trapped nerve and tried to make thing easier for me the only long and painful part was the gas transfer part my mouthpiece kept letting in air as my Jaw was so sore from my RA, But the other good news is I have lost 9 lbs in two weeks with the help and support of you all RA has eased off for now so back in the gym for some gentle exercises, Again Thx for all your replies. Matt/Fran

  • Hi MC, Good to see your improving lung space and losing weight too, sorry I've not been around for a while but my eye has been giving me some trouble and computer screens have been painful to look at.

    I'm not breaking any records at the moment although I feel a six minute walk attempt coming up next week at my 3 monthly lung transplant check up. Last time I managed a new record of 495 meters so surely 500 must be on the cards next Tuesday, Come on Dall!!! its got to be possible

    I hope your Arthritis gives you a break for Christmas and the New Year, Good wishes to you and Fran.


  • Well done Matt that's good news so pleased things a little better for you
