Hello anyone who may be there. I'm 32 and was diagnosed with copd a couple months ago. My fev1 thing was 69%. I swear in 2 months ive thought about this from morning til night. How long have I got? 5yrs? 25 yrs? Ive gone from 40 a day to 3 or 4 a day. Anyone help me out here? 3 young kids I was kinda hoping to see grow up... many thanks anyone who can enlighten me on whether say age 50 is out the question now??..
