hey this is great. I've never had this many CF resources at once, and I mean real resources from people who live it. I'm 23, 24 4-29, and i was diagnosed when I was 6months old.  I've had the ups and downs, lobectomy, polypctomy, embulizations, broncs, all that crap. anyways its never really talked about but I want to know what everyone's PFT numbers are just to see how different they are maybe becuase of age or whatever factors.
When I'm at my healthiest I run FEV- 82s and FV1-74s, when I need a cleanout probably around FEV-75-70 FV1-60-55...
If you're willing to share that would be great.  Plus i wanted to know what life is like with lower lung function/ oxygen/ lung transplant especially when a lung tx is needed with regards to indicators like PFT numbers.

My FEV1 is 82, my FEVC is 83, and my FEV1/FEVC is 97. I haven't done pfts in about 2 years, so I'm hoping that when I go to do them next week they are higher.

How many times do you all do them at each visit? Is there a noticeable variation with each time (at same visit) when doing them?
