  • I have had copd for 17 years and now its much worse. im always short of breath and use the rescue inhaler a lot. I just turned 70 and i use advair spiriva and a nebulier. I was in pulmonary rehab for 7 years but they ran out of money and shut down. I just take one day at a time. Good luck to you I know its a horrible desease.

  • I was told a few months ago i have emphysema.. no idea where i'm at with it.. but will being specialist.. finally.. I will get some answers... might take me a while..but i am determined..so far all that's been scripted for me is oxygen 24/7 and ventolin inhaler.. ventolin doesn't seem to help sometimes and have been told that i'm not tolerating the oxygen therapy very well.. I could have told regular Dr. that.. In fact I think i did!!!! because i smoked for years and only had symptoms that could be blamed on other things.. we have no idea how i have suffered with this.. so it's a bit scary.. but i will not give up without a fight.. with or without support of loved ones..
