New here and to the emphysema diagnosis, glad to have found this place. So much to absorb and learn. I live in South Florida. Does not seem to be a lot on the web about this. My first question is should I be taking medications? Doctor only gave me rescue inhaler after asking about symptoms etc. I'm confused in that some places say no cure, no stopping progression, other places I understand that daily inhalers help? I have become a clean freak, getting rid of dust and not using my clorox clean up and instead lysol wipes, swiffer dusters so it is not going into the air and bought some clean air machines. I do walk most everyday a brisk 20 minutes. Anything else? Thanks so much
