Hi I was diagnosed by my doctor to have copd 3 years ago I am now 40. my fev1 is 62%. I have no inhalers ECT and it's hardly affecting me.maybe if I go for a run I get slightly out of breath but I'm guessing anyone would without copd?? I get conflicting info on things as people say they only have 55% fev1 but are on inhalers steroids hospitals ECT... and this due to come in the next few years?i would love to hear from people who have had it from a young age yet 30 yrs on are still here.its hard to plan a future not knowing what's coming in the next 5 years or am I worrying to much.doctors don't say much about this disease apart from it's a slow deteriating disease. ps it was caused by smoking as my fev1 has not gone down since giving up 3 yrs ago.i was losing 2% fev1 every year whilst smoking thankyou
