I recently asked advice on my test results for copd and my diagnosis of ens for my nasal surgery. I wanted to thank you all for your great recomendations. However, i seemed to make a mistake, it was my FEVI/FVC(%) that was 76% predicted, Not my FEV1. Its turns out that my FEV1 is 68% predicted. This test was done in July. I saw my pulmonologist yesterday and she wanted me to retake my PFT to see if any improvement following the addition of exercise program. I told her i felt that my breathing was not good and that that nasal surgery and removal of important turbinate tissue and septal cartilege was really affecting me. She did't prescribe any medication and said to reatake the test and try accupunture for your nose. How do i cope with this , my lungs are bad and my nose doesnt protect my lungs anymore from cold air or fumes. I really need some help with this any how to cope. I have been to several ENT doctors who say there is nothong to be done exept for moisturizers, diet and exercise. Someone please help me. Everyday and every breathe is tough for me. I have to stay healthy and keep working. How do i do this???? Thanks for listening. James
