Well I just got home from my doctors visit. And I have to add another illnees to my list of pains. He just diagnosed me with COPD. He gave me Symbicort and Spiriva. And gave me an order for a nebulizer machine. I already have the medication for it due to my Asthma. But when my daughter got married and moved out she took the machine. It was hers to begin with. I had to doing a breathing treatment while I was in his office and they have started keeping track of my lung compasity.I will have to go in weekly for the next few weeks and do a breathing test so they have a record on my lung compasity.My oxigen levels have dropped off from the high 90's to the low 80's in just a few weeks.The doctor said he doesn't feel as if it is to the point I would need to have oxagen for here at home.At this point we just need to get these new meds to kick in.And watch it closely. And I was right the pnemonia is gone. It is just this other crude that has been making me cough my head off since I finished my antibiotics.
