I was diagnosed 3 yrs back with COPD and was measured at 67% FEV1.
1yr later dutifully went back and didn't feel any worse.
Had Spironmetry and was told - No Difference.
Didn't see much point in goimg every year exposing myself to the waiting room so decided to miss it till the following year.
Reading this time - 51%
EH!!! How come I think to myself.
What was I originally, I asked - she checked and it was 67%
And the following test, I asked. 'Oh 62%' I'm told.
Would YOU be annoyed?
So, for want of better knowledge (And none was offered) I must assume I shall degrade at 5% per year giving me just another 10 yrs to go.
I am 67 yrs young at present (And can STILL walk 3 miles).
