Hi was told I had COPD a while ago. After finally having a ct scan I’ve just been told I have emphysema (and slight bronchiectasis in one lung) my Fev1 is 62% at the moment. Could any kind person that has the same let me know how they are getting on with emphysema, how long had it and how it’s progressed for them. I’m 60 normal weight and BMI. I was quite fit until I had a bad flare up that lasted most of December and January . Would like a good realistic idea of what I’m dealing with. Stopped smoking ages ago but have the odd relapse! My lungs seemed to have deteriorated in the past 6 months. I walk a lot 2 days a week at work and try to be pretty active. Please let me know how it affects you and how if it’s been stable. The lung specialist told me it can suddenly go down quick at intervals like a step after a flare up / infection and not get back to the level it was prior to that. So I’m worried now.
