I'm new here.
Hospital admission last year 2016. Have been left with side effects of shortness of breath especially when the weather is extremely cold OR very hot which does limit what I can/cannot do. Exertion doesn't help much either. So at the age of 71, having been quite active prior to my hospital admission, I am having to learn to "take it gently " which is slow progress and extremely frustrating.
How do you cope with the annoyance/frustration of not being able to do what you used to do even though you know you can no longer do things at the same pace as before?
Gained a lot of weight due to steroid/antibiotic medication and limitations as above. Have had 3 chest infections in the past 3 months. Any suggestions as to how to lose this weight would be very much appreciated.
COPD is certainly a "learning curve" for me.
