My mum recently got diagnosed with COPD, she is in her early 60s and now a none smoker although she used to smoke until the age of about 35.
During the test at the hospital she was "mild" COPD and then when the test was repeated after she had taken some kind of spray she was "low" COPD.
She doesnt seem too bothered by the diagnoses, i don't know if she doesnt want to think about it or just thinks it's an "age thing" but i think it's really serious. I'm really upset and worried and have no one to talk to it about.
Can someone please tell me what it all means in terms of life expectancy and disease progression.
