awww I am so sorry you are having to deal with this! It stinks that you just got a letter with no explanation! I will tell you this. it does not mean you HAVE emphysema, it means that you just have elements that could cause emphysema if you had kept smoking. The other thing I want you to think about is that if you had something serious, the Drs would have called you, not sent a letter.

you are going to be just fine! I promise! :)
