xStaceyxLast night I wrestled three times, first since I struggled last show about a month ago.I managed to win the trophy by beating one girl and two guys. I think the weight I lost helped me to get through. I went at a slower pace, did pursed lip breathing when I could and took oxygen levels as soon as I finished each match.So far so good although it definitely made me tired.

xStaceyxFinally got my little oxygen thing (not good with technical names) $115 here in New Zealand.I used it for exercise today, found I stayed within 95-99 except once when doing an ab exercise that causes pressure on the chest. Day 11 in a row at the gym, weight is not shifting anywhere fast enough for what I'm doing or my liking but got to keep persevering.

RubiaThe pictures below where taken last week with RT, RN's MD's that are involved in the care of those patients with COPD diagnoses. The reason of wearing orange was to make aware our patients and visitors of what "COPD" means and to let them know where to look for consults & treatments.

CarolineNeck Exercises, but it looks mostly useless because it is so small.
CarolineIt works fine if you zoom in on it. I hope that this helps everyone with neck, upper back, and shoulder problems.1 week ago

edpe77To "zoom" hold the Ctrl-key and use mouse wheel to change size of image.ed1 week ago
edpe77I do these every day in the shower. Plus, 10 wall push-ups; and a breath-in, exhale thru pursed lips while bringing my shoulders forward to squeeze the last bit of air out of my lungs.ed1 week ago
Carolineedpe77, I bet that the warm water helps the exercise to work. Thank you for explaining how to zoom in. I also find that lat pull downs also help. If you do not have a machine, you can use a towel and use the towel like the pull down bar.1 week ago

xStaceyxFirst time I've ever worked out 7 days on a row. A friend of mine also has given me an oil to use with boiling water that I've found helps with my chest.This is the first week I've noticed other symptoms of COPD, it's a bit scary, but I need to handle it.
CarolineThere you go.1 week ago
Jane MartinxStaceyx,Congratulations on keeping up with the workouts! Yes, it can indeed be scary, but keep on asking questions and learning. Your friends here at 360social are here for you!1 week ago
xStaceyxThank you I appreciate that and am glad to have a place where people understand what you're going through. I find some days I'll have a bit of mucus I need to clear and other days where I feel like my chest is closing up. I take my inhalor and do diaphragm breathing and eventually it eases. 1 week ago

xStaceyxI started trying to lose weight just before I got diagnosed as I found I was getting breathless in my sport like I did when I smoked. After being diagnosed I upped all parts of staying healthy & am now 7.5 kilos down, many more I plan to lose :) Next week is my first match since being diagnosed and a true test on whether I can continue what I love to do. Professional wrestling is really the most intense form of cardio I've ever done. I'm training hard to be able to keep doing it. I also coach it & have around 25 trainees. It is my long term career plan, I've always been a fighter, now more than ever I'm going to dig into that fight.

Sandy KramerGoing Orange for COPD:Because my school colors (Princeton University) are ORANGE and black.Because I will not allow my disability and indigence prevent me from trying to help others.
Sandy KramerLast issue of "Princeton Alumni Weekly", we mentioned several sons of ’67 who were working through important health issues successfully. Add to their number Sandy Kramer, who “this spring was diagnosed with Stage 1 prostate cancer. I opted for external beam radiation therapy. I had 44 sessions over a nine-week period. The treatments, per se, were uneventful. The side effects were an entirely different matter. During the sessions, 1960s recorded music was piped in. I was told that my prognosis is excellent, but my first post-treatment PSA is not scheduled until November. To celebrate the end of my therapy, I donned the orange and black, and sang The Four Freshmen’s ‘Graduation Day’ to the technicians.”(Dr.) Sandy KramerPrincetonUniversity@Cox.net8908 East Altadena AveScottsdale, AZ 85260 480-860-13843 weeks ago
