I am 47 and my consultant has just told me that I have severe emphysema and my CT has shown a nodule on/in the lung. I gave up smoking 15 years ago and smoked for about 10 years. I get very tired most of the time and just can't do what I used to do. I've worked in the civil service for 18 years and have just gone to part time. Even cutting my time down I still feel tired - thinking of asking for medical retirement. I just don't know what to do. My husband is now retired and I would love to be at home with him for how ever long I have.
Any advice would be appreciated. thanks
