I have never been told whether I am correct when I say I have mild COPD, because I am fit and well, despite the lung issues. I don't use any medication and manage really well. I was diagnosed in 1968 aged 16, had a lobectomy of the left lung 2 years later. I have never smoked and other than the cough and wheeziness am very lucky with my general health. My average Lung Function is 170, and my sats are about 94/5. It didn't concern me until I just read a post regarding travel insurance and thought maybe someone will know on the forum without bothering my GP. I don't want to mislead the insurance company and then find I am not insured.
