My name is Ken, I am 69 and have had chest problems since early childhood.
Last year I was finally told that I had COOD by a radiologist, then when I saw a consultant I was told that I actually had Bronchiectasis
This certainly explains all of my recurring chest infections over the years.
I have days when it's very hard to do anything due to fatigue
But I am determined to remain as active as possible in the hope that it helps me to remain fairly fit.
These days I cannot do anything in the gym or go swimming, because I have lost a lot of coordination due to brain problems similar to Parkinson's
But it's a case of trying to take each day as it comes and getting the best I can out if each day.
