How much time have you spent on treatment?

When reading Tim Wotton's blog this week the following really caught our attention.

Tim reckons that over his lifetime he has swallowed 280 tablets every week, which works out at 14,560 a year and 364,000 over the last 25 years.

Also during this time, he's had 10,000 nebuliser sessions, 18,200 physiotherapy sessions, over 50 IV treatments, 600 visits to his chemist and 250 visits to Frimley Park hospital.

We all know CF is a very treatment-heavy condition to live with but these figures really pack a punch. How much time do you think you have spent on treatment over the years? How many tablets do you think you've taken? Do comment on Tim's blog and let us know.


  1. All I know is that my daughter is only 5, so these numbers are staggering to me. Oh boy what a life of treatments we have ahead of ourselves!
