Hi all

Thanks in advance for reading my post. I am new to this group and after some advice or if anyone has been in a similar situation.

My dad is at final stage of COPD and also has all of the above conditions. I guess I'm wanted to find out what to expect. He's on oxygen 24 hours a day and breathing is still difficult. Can just about get up and that's about it. He's also recently been suffering with low blood pressure. We're all afraid to ask how long he has but it's on all of our minds. Less than a year ago he was not on oxygen, driving, able to do house work. Walk short distances etc so in a short time as rapidly deteriorated which is worrying how quickly it has happened given he had it for years with minimal change. Recent x Ray's have also showed the scaring on his lungs is much worse. Which we already know given how much he struggles

It's horrible seeing him like this and not being able to help, he's 71. Was a heavy smoker for a long time but quit in his 40ies when he had a heart attack

Sorry for long post
