During the test you need to take in air as much as you can & then forcing it out. They then measure your capacity & rate of fow etc. It is normal. There will be no other gas . Do not worry, worrying will increase your anxiety.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early recovery.
Any query, please ask.

well it was like when i breathed in i had to take as much in when i did it felt like i was breathing sumthing else in too

There can not be something else as there were other medical personnel present. They could detect it because they were also breathing the same air.

As you are not able to get the detailed report it is difficult to tell . Please read this resource about your test s. The gas or air whatever was used will not be harmful for you
