my husband just been diagnosed with CPOD, he had not smoked for last 4 years, but was a heavy smoker for over 40 years, we live in middle east and away from family, I am heartbroken as both my parents had this illness and deceased,
I am so confused with reading everything on internet, my head is minced! my heart is breaking, I am angry, confused, upset and not sleeping, but know my husband is suffering also, I trying to hide my feelings and be strong for him, he is a stubborn man!
just would like to hear peoples stories and what they have done to slow it down, and guidelines he is a very fit 58 year old, healthy heart, we eat good, maybe a stone over weight
but nothing to worry about, he has had so many blood tests and scans this last few weeks that we know he is healthy apart form this illness, look forward to hearing from you, x
