Hi everyone, would really appreciate some info and advice for my husband. He was diagnosed with COPD about 2 years ago and not suffered too many symptoms up until now. For the last month or two he seems to cough non stop first thing in the morning and last thing at night, with several episodes during the day sometimes. The cough is exceptionally 'mucousy' but it is generally clear. Often he ends up vomiting! He gave up smoking around 20 years ago and has recently lost 3 stone in weight and is generally fit, breathes easily and exercises regularly.
Can anyone suggest a way of reducing the impact of this cough, it makes my heart bleed listening to him sometimes! Oh and he is only stage 1/2 with 97% oxygen and 70 on the spirometer scale thingy.
So sorry to take up with such a lengthy post!
