Hi I've been diagnosed with copd I struggle to walk and collapsed the other day after carrying a few bags from the shop to the car my lung age is 108 last test I'm 41 I've got all my numbers but don't really understand I struggle to do anything and yup guess I'm shocked I lost my son 12 years ago and then my 17 year old daughter (lung condition) 19 months I've tried to stop smoking and back on patches basically I guess I'd like to know how you cope and if anyone can explain my numbers my doc said moderate to severe !! Smoking is must but yes I guess losing my daughter has caused a lot of issues for me so now is the time thank you for reading and I hope some one can shed some light !! Fev1 1.13 litres percent predicated 44% forced capacity 2.55 litres fev1/fvc ratio 44.3 ?? Any help would be much appreciated but please no judgement about smoking x
