Which works out for my age and height as:
It's official, my lung function has crawled slightly above normal range, (normal range being 80% to >100%) This is my highest blow since early 2009. 2009 was probably my last really healthy year (in retrospect.) 3 weeks in and Kalydeco has been awesome for me, even the physio was amazed at the turnaround. I didn't even do a best of three on the spiro machine ;-)
To put this into some kind of perspective; my last blow pre-IVs in December was 65%. My blow post-IVs in December was 65%. I had been on 2 weeks of Ceftazedime and Tobramycin and had been going to the gym 3 times a week to try and get rid of as much mucus as I could. After all that time, drug money and effort my FEV1 was the same as it had been before I had started IVs and I was pretty deflated. I was also baffled as these IVs had usually worked for me in the past. I felt slightly better but the cough and mucus were still there. The implications were that my CF was getting worse. All I can say is thanks to the scientists (and the IPIG :-))!
