Hi everyone, have just joined the forum as I am worried for my dad. He is almost 70 and for a while now he has been getting really short breathed with the slightest bit of exercise, walking upstairs, a short walk, carrying something a little heavy or even bending over will usually make him very out of breath. A few times it has got so bad that he is really gasping and wheezy, he can barely breath in and then he wets himself.
He has been under a specialist for a while and has had various tests but they say everything is pretty normal and that it must be because he is overweight, which yes he is but he really isn't very big think he weighs about 15 stone, it really doesn't seem enough to cause the problem to be so severe as sometimes the slightest thing can bring it on.
He has another appointment with the specialist soon and am just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation or has any tips on what he could ask them?
Thank you for any help
