I wont boar you all with my details as I've asked loads of questions and had loads of very helpful replies and advice.
I was reading up on my Bullous Emphysema today and came across a very Interesting article on it.
As you know I had smoked for about 26 years very light smoker, the article stated people with Bullous Emphysema were probably born with it, this would back up my doctors theory, never gave his theory much thought until now. I always put it down to my smoking habit. 10 menthol per day but not at the start, I would only smoke about 5 cigs a day for the first few years then I graduated up to about 10 a day.
It was a very encouraging read as it states that being diagnosed very early (stage 1 very mild fev1 81%) with little or no symptoms and due to stopping smoking It should not progress however the lung volume will decline with age, it's all about keeping fit, eating healthy and doing the right things and staying away from cigs and cigarette smoke.
Every year I used to have a few new year resolutions, top one was giving up smoking, funny, now all I want to do is to stay fit and healthy, been off the dreaded cigs 4 years this March.
