Am 46 yr old Male now. I am ex-smoker and now smoke once in a while during parties.My first PFT was done in 2011 and FEV1 was 60% with probable restriction. The Pulmo ordered for a HRCT and it came normal and didnt prescribe anything other than reducing weight.
I then did my PFT in 2015, the FEV1 was 69% and restriction probable . No action taken.
Next PFT done in 2016 , FEV1 was 72% and was a normal spirometery.
PFT done in 2017, FEV1 came down to 65% restriction probable. The Pulmo told me i have mild COPD . I was put on inhaler.
PFT done today , FEV1 was 64% with restriction probable . The pulmo has asked for a CT scan and am going next week.
I do excercise and pretty active . No signs of SOB . I do high intensity weight training .
My Echo was normal .
I was diagnosed with OSA in 2016 and am on CPAP since then .
I dont know what is the issue my PFT does goes up and down with no shortness of breath.
Any pointers would help Me if anyone in the same boat.
