Hi, I'm new to this site and desperately want to understand my condition. I am only 43 but i have bronchiectasis, emphysema ( diagnosed at 30 years old) and have been told i now need lung reduction due to gases not transferring properly. My quality of life is declining quite fast now and I was hoping anyone who is going through the same or who has had this surgery could give me some information. Also i have been told of coils inserted into the airways surgically to kerp them open and stop them collapsing but nhs won't fund it, as anyone else heard of this? Thanks for reading and I look forward to any responses
