i feel for all those who life their lives in discomfort...or worse
I have developed copd.
It started 3 to 4 years ago and i gave up smoking at that time. I was 36 then.
My lungs are still over 80% so altho i get out of breath easily, I do fine every day. Unfortunately my cough and obstacle sensation in my lungs is very bad and i have constant burning / throbbing that mainly comes thru my back (behind my lungs)
Unfortunately its getting worse despite me not smoking and i try to read and find out what more i can do to help slow or stop the progression ( which i fear is impossible)
i was hoping there may be others that can help give me advice of things i can do at my stage to help me live as long as i can.... i know there are many worse than me here, but i am still reasonably young (just turned 40) and would like to know by those with experience..
ill jog every day for the rest of my life if slows the progression.
i have an active job as a builder and burn a lot of calories being active all day ( altho not really cardio) however it can get v dusty ( i wear a mask sometimes but i often wonder if i should stop this line of work for the sake of mu lungs..)
