Hi everyone, I have been on this forum for months,and feel as though I know alot of you already. I live in the States. I was told I had very severe pulmonary emphysema in Oct. by my pft test taken. My first pulmonary visit is Thurs. Strangely enough I'm not scared. I'm only breathless upon exertion, and so far only on Anoro and spiriva and an emergency inhaler. I want to know if anyone else is like this and how long before they had to use oxygen? Good health to all!
