Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
These can me done every 6 months
Just to monitor progresion
why after lung function test, I cough up blood for weeks
Lung function tests may be done if you have a change in symptoms
Why would I want to suffer and spend the money if there is no cure. Been told, they can only keep me confortabe by medication
It helps to monitor if there are any significant changes
I've had this since 1995 and for the last 5 years,symptoms have only got worse. I'm 80 years and the money and pain after test are not worth it
Then you may ask your doctor if you can avoid the tests, I think he will understand
Sorry, I have ask my doctor and wanted 2nd opinion
Is there anything else you would like me to answer on this topic?
Sorry not satisfied with answer. Sorry to take your time
I'm not sure what other questions you want me to answer?
I believe I have answered your original question
no, not really.
You said how often and for what purpose
I said every 6 months , and to monitor disease progression
That's not really an answer
If you are not satisfied it is likely because it is not what you wanted to hear, not because my answer is inaccurate
Then I think in the future you should be more specific about what you are looking for in your question
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX somewhere else.
Have a nice evening
