My Dad was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis about 5 years ago
After recently being admitted to hospital for the first time the consultant said he had COPD
In my mind after reading pages and pages
COPD and Bronchiectasis are two different things and my Dad can actually have both they didn't make it very clear to us at the time he was fighting for his life .
I don't have access to doctors etc without my mother being by my side
Am I correct as trying to explain it to my elderly mother is exhausting
can anyone recommend a website or leaflet etc that explains this in simple terms ?
Or am I totally incorrect and as shes says COPD is an umbrella term for Bronchiectasis ?
