I think I have been able to take it in my stride because of all you guys and your positivity on this forum, just a bit scared though. So thank you for keeping it real
Just been diagnosed with severe emphy... - British Lung Foun...
Afternoon and welcome.
I'm so glad you feel supported. I was diagnosed with severe Emphysema 2011 at the moment I feel really well I was given Azithromycin in December because of constant infections. I've just finished my second PR and did really well and my nurses have said I could possibly reduce my oxygen. I know I'll be ill again but I've just got to take each day as it comes (And keep everything crossed).
I am very ill and a gold stage Emphysema,awaiting a lung reduction op.I also have severe asthma,Keep going hun,and keep fighting..Regards Laura

Hi I am a bit confused over your diagnosis! Emphysema comes under the umbrella of COPD along with Chronic Bronchitis. So i don't see how you can be moderate in one and severe in the other? Or am I just being thick? x
