Hello, my name is Dionne. I have had severe uncontrolled asthma since I was 28yrs old. In 2013 I was diagnosed with Emphysema. I don't need oxygen therapy because of air trapping, instead I use 5 inhalers (Advir, Quvar, Spiriva, Atrovent,& ProAir). I also have to take 10-20mg of Prednisone daily along with Singular & bi-weekly injections of Xolair. Soon I will need a lung transplant so I'm currently in Pulmonary Rehab; and I have to say it really helps improve my walking distance.
