I have this week been confirmed with COPD by my GP after testing. She is refering me to hospital but have been given no other information. I am going out of my mind and not sure how bad this is or could be later in life

I gave up smoking 13 years ago was never heavy smoker.

    Hi Karen,

    Dont worry yourself to much, it will probably just be for the usual copd test.

    When I was sent to hospital, I had a couple of breathing test, an x-ray, a scan, and a blood test.

    By the way, what are your symtons with breathing, coughing etc, if any?

    Dont worry,

    Ron x
