Hello all, have lived with lung problems all my life. I have emphysema and bronchiectasis (the COPD caused by Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency). I turned 40 last year and had a hospital stay and have not felt my best fir a while so currently feeling a bit sorry for myself that I have never known what it’s like to be “normal”. Starting pulmonary rehab next week and had my assessment today. CT Scan scheduled next month too, having not had one since 2014. So this is all positive.
Would love to hear from you and thanks for the support.
