Hi there. I am scheduled to begin pulmonary rehab once I get the referral from my doctor, and I’m not exactly sure what to expect. I see my new PCP for our first appointment on 10/24 and I imagine she will clue me in, and in the meantime I’ve been reading about it and developing all kinds of question. 1. It sounds like there is a lot of physical exercise involved? What if I am simply not able to do it? Sometimes the exertion of just walking across the room brings on SOB. Can I wear my oxygen while doing it? 2. I also have CHF (Congestive Heart Failure), and one of the articles I read suggested that pulmonary rehab could affect my CHF negatively. Anyone know if that’s true? 3. Do you do the rehab by yourself, or with a group of people? 4. What kinds of results are they looking for, or trying to measure? 5. Finally, I was told I need to get a spirometry test before beginning. I know I had one when I was first diagnosed and sort of remember it, but right now for me a “deep breath out” is the same thing as a regular breath out, meaning there’s no strength in it, no force, just a wheezy short breath out. I’m worried I won’t be able to complete the test. Any answers to questions will be very appreciated. Thank you!
