Despite reading and learning on here, and following the advice given, I have developed a nasty case of oral thrush.
To be honest, since my FEV1 score has turned out to be not as bad as was at first indicated (it's actually 70% - or it was the last time it was tested) I am going to try reducing/stopping the inhalers. I'm not going back to see the doctor, so I'll just give it a trial without medical supervision.
At present, under doctors orders, I am taking two puffs of the Symbicort 200/6 (one in the morning and one at night) and inhaling one capsule of Spiriva at lunch-time. This was the dosage recommended by the doctor when he thought my FEV1 score was 37% because of the chest infection.
What I'm concerned about is if I should deteriorate, there's not much left for me, apart from oxygen, which I want to put off for the next 25yrs at least.
Day 47 of No Smoking today. I'm not doing it as regularly, but I still find occasionally that I reach for the (non-existent) cigarettes when the adverts come on.
