    Hi Khadija,

    If you look through some of the older posts on this forum you should get a lot of good advice and valuable information about other peoples experiences with the condition which should be helpful to you. Sometimes people ask specific questions about how others are being treated medically for COPD. At the minute I have an appointment to be assessed as to my suitability for Pulmonary Rehab so I would be interested to know what kind of exercises other people experienced at P.R.

    Do you go to a Respiratory clinic and what kind of medications do you take for your conditions, on a daily basis, at the present time?

    Also if you have specific questions re. your condition there are others who will be there to advise you if you post your questions. Keep good contact with your Medical support team to ensure that you are getting the right treatment for you. God bless.

    Regards,

    Robert.

    A very '80s expression there. I know of only one other person who uses that...

    Hi Khadija

    Pulmonary rehabilitation courses are by GP or consultant referral for patients who have de-condition through COPD, they are run by the NHS and patients are properly assessed before and after the course.

    It is a course to help patients understand better about COPD and bring to awareness some self help tips and techniques that can be applied to our daily lives.

    The course helps us help ourselves manage our condition more successfully and usually promotes a better quality of life when we put into practise all we learn on the course.

    The course is sometimes called LEEP (Lung Education and Exercise Programme).

    I attended a PR course a good few years ago and can recommend it from personal experience. It is one of the main things that helped me the most, that and stopping smoking.

    Hope this information helps some Khadija.

    Regards

My doctor has enabled me to undertake physiotherapy at my own home with exercising and education which have my condition as the focus point it is monitored throughout and change is made when I have bad feelings from my breathing.
