As you will see by the title I'm new to this community having been diagnosed with COPD ( EMPHYSEMA ) yesterday. This diagnosis came as something of a relief as I thought I had IPF, which I believe has a worse prognosis. I don't know what stage I am at but ,judging by my mildish symptoms, I'm not too advanced. Consultant is arranging for spirometry etc . so I will soon know.
Like others I was previously only able to find American sites which, whilst informative, covered some inapplicable subjects.
