I have read all your posts where some have mentioned Symbicort, Prednisone etc (hope spellings are right). Am wondering if anyone knows or uses the medication my husband is on. He was diagnosed in 2009 (swine flu period, anyone remember) while on holiday in the UK with
COPD. When we returned home his medications were changed to Foradil ( Atimos), Atrovent, Beclamatezone, and Ventolin when needed. He has done one rehab course, but not invited for more. During his last spyrometry test he had a terrifying blackout whist in the cubicle and that was the second time it happened. So he cannot have any more of them. He last time he had an eight monthly appointment in hospital he was told no further appointments but to contact GP if he got ill and he would refer him to the specialist. Is this norm? I was very cross with this as it was a peace of mind to have someone there in case of problems. Also people keep talking of readings, I presume readings you do at home? What are these? Do you mean you have some machine to do readings at home? Would be very happy if anyone could enlighten me. Thank you.
