My husband suffered from COPD so I know what you are going through. Please get in touch with doctors and ask if he should be on oxygen. my husband started on it for a few hours a day and it did help. In the end he was on it 24 hours a day but even with that he had small portable cylinder so could still go out and do things.

I really feel for you. I am not going to tell you everything will be ok because that would be lying as I am sure you know.

Steroid tablets could help as well, my husband was on 5mg a day, The dose was put up when he had infections.

Please get in touch if you need more help.
