Hi, I joined this site on behalf of my husband who has emphysema, had it now about 10 years. He is on three different inhalers and some days he is really struggling for breath and gets totally worn out. He is 75. He can barely walk these days and I need to push him in a wheelchair or he has a mobility scooter which he can use around the neighbourhood (if it is fine). I came across this site the other day and it seemed to offer a lot of support for COPD sufferers. This is the first time I have posted. I am not sure what to expect as his condition does seem to be worsening, we have visited the doctor regularly this past few months and don't seem to be getting much support from him or the practice. Has anyone any useful advice to help him and me please. He is not on oxygen as his oxygen levels always seem to be ok when checked, but it is the constant fighting for breath that frightens me, and him of course. Thank you. Buzz's wife.
