Hi all,new here and new to emphasima, I have recently been diagnosed and last week at my respiratory appointment I was told my airways are moderate but my lungs are severe .. because I was quite shocked I didn't ask many questions, my question today is how can I be moderate but also severe.? What does this mean for me as so many websites and all read a little different. What is life expectancy for severe.? I am already on two different steroid inhalers and been told I have to have another one was told I have to rinse mouth with new one as can cause thrush in the mouth but I didn't ask what to rinse with. Is it just water or mouthwash? .. I am so confused with this all and don't really have anyone to talk to.
