Hello I am new to this site and have been told I have copd by my GP after spirometry tests.I also have asthma. I am 65yrs young and not ready to throw in the towel yet. I aim to grow old disgracefully ! I take preventative inhalers daily and emergency meds when needed. I try not to worry to much and keep myself fairly fit, although I get breathless now on exertion, and have a permanent cough. Am I entitled to pulmonary rehab and any lung/breathing devices on the NHS ?. All I ever get when I go to my GP is inhalers. Also can I take anything to help clear the phlegm out of my lungs. How can I tell what is causing this, I don't know if I have emphysema or not. I would be grateful for any help......I hate this rubbish weather, roll on the summer, or perhaps my GP could write me up for a month in the Caribbean on the NHS !! Pigs might fly.
