Hi everybody I am new here. I am 47 years old. I was diagnosed with COPD, 1 year ago in June. I do not know what level I am at. (my doctor did not say there was levels of this illness) my cat scan showed several right-sided calcified lymph nodes. There is some
minor vascular calcification. On lung windows, there are some wispy peripheral densities having the appearance of minor scarring or atelectasis. also Several tiny calcified right paratracheal lymph nodes compatible with prior
granulomatous change. Every couple months I am getting Bronchitits, and breathing is getting very difficult at times. Can anybody give me any ideas to help manage my illness better ? I currently take Symbicort 2 puffs twice a Day. I am learning many new things on this site about my illness. Thank You for sharing your stories.
