Hi everyone, I hope today is a good day for you.
I've been a member here for about four years as I was caring for my mum who had copd. I gave up smoking when she died, but I've been getting more breathless and wheezy recently. I had a spirometery which shows I'm not asthmatic but I do have "some obstruction ". The nurse thought it may be weight related but is sending me for a chest X-ray. My question is can see emphysema on a chest X-ray?
I smoked for about 35 years
