mom had a follow up consult with her lung specialist today she got all of her results and its good news!

i am just home from being at the hospital with my mom. she saw her lung specialist. she has moderate emphacema and also COPD. her lungs are only functioning at 40 percent…she has lost 60 percent of her lung function. doctor told her not to smoke any more, she isnt, but is using an E cig, he said the E cigs are 95 percent safer than regular cigarettes. the doctor also told her to go walking for half an hour every day and that will help her, so both of us are going to do it together, me to lose weight and her to help her lungs. other than those results everything else is clear…there is no cancer. she was discharged from the specialist no further consultations needed unless another problem occurs and if that happens her gp can refer her back to him again.
To say I am happy is an understatement. Relief flooded through me when we got the results!

  1. I’m so glad for you and your mum and family that your mum’s results didn’t show anything more serious. What a relief! I can’t be easy though, to deal with living with COPD and emphysema but at least she is doing everything she can to help her condition. Walking is always good exercise for everyone – hopefully, it will ease your mum’s breathing difficulties and help you lose weight which I know, you’ve been wanting to do. At least, things are looking more positive with your mum. Hopefully, your dad will listen to you soon and start to make more progress with coping with illness too xxx

  2. Great! šŸ™‚ I believed it’ll be good. Really good news and I’m happy with you. It’s also very good that your mum doesn’t smoke and that you plan to walk everyday, good idea and hope it’ll help you both.
