Firstly, I know nobody can answer this question, but I need some kind of hope to cling onto.
I am a 35 Year old male, recently just been diagnosed with stage 2 empthsyma with a FEV1 reading of 60%. I currently do lots of excercise, treadmill, walking etc. DO about 10000 steps a day. Not really feeling the affects of COPD at the moment and only get breathless if doing vigorous excercise.
I have a yound daughter and I am petrified that I wont see her grow up into a little girl. Realistically, how long will it be until this disease grabs hold of me. I have smoked in past (not a lot, about 5 a day), but haven't touched a ciggeratte since diagnoses about 3 months ago.
