I have been diagnosed with COPD after I mentioned a 3 week cough during a routine GP check up. A nurse gave me Spirometry? Lung function test and said I had the lungs of a 90 year old. I am 65. The doctor gave me a broncholdilator? inhaler thingie and told me to use it as necessary and to exercise. I don't use the inhaler as I don't feel any different from before the diagnosis. I walk fairly regularly and have included more hills. Am a bit dismayed to be told it's going to get worse. Is it inevitable or do people manage to hold it at bay?
