Hi, I was recently taken into hospital because I was having trouble breathing, I had a chest xray done, and when the chest doctor came to see me the next day I asked if I had a chest infection, to which she replied as well as other things, and then said that "put it this way you have no more reserve left in your lungs you are using it, and if you dont stop smoking now you will be in and out of here (hospital) until you end up in a wheelchair with a oxygen canister with you 24/7" on my discharge notes she put AE COPD, my question is that in march of this year I had spirometry tests and they just shown that I had asthma, can asthma change to COPD that quick??? I am so confused I dont know who to believe I have COPD nurses coming to my home at the present (they have for the last 4 weeks also the physio comes and have had 3 further chest infections since coming out of hospital, the little bugs just dont want to leave my body for some reason. I would be grateful for any help to this rather confusing situation. Many Thanks Julia. sorry for the long question
