Hi i am almost at my wits end with the attidude my husband has re his diagonosise of COPD last year. He was diagonosed with chronic bronchitisits after a xray and a lung function test which they labeled as COPD.He has been a smoker since an early age prob averaging at 15 cigs aday mainly hand rolled. The doc explained to him that his best choice is to stop to help slow the progression down. He as a salbutomal inhaler to use 4 times a day or when breathless this confuses him as he dont get breathless. His main symptom is a muscus cough which is worse first thing in a morning or after laying/resting for too long. This is starting to effect my sleep when i say anything he says its how it is and i could always get in the spare room. He just dont seem to get it at all he already been on a course of steriods and antibiotics this year and when i ask him to go back to docs due to the cough worsening he says its fine he doent feel ill and his mucus is not coloured or thicker.
I have now bought some ear plugs to try so i hopfully get some sleep.
He knows how it can end up as he has an anuntie who is very bad with COPD.
