New Dx of COPD in JUST FOR FUN Posted May 31 · Report reply I was diagnosed with COPD maybe 6 months after my Lobectomy so over 11 years ago. I think you will certainly find it better by taking the inhalers on a regular basis. I get lots of exercise with owning a hobby farm so I don't go to a gym. Just had a stress test for my heart and the Doctor told me to keep doing what I am doing because everything looks good. For sure would be great to exchange email/phone numbers with you. Been friends on here for a long time. It tried messaging you the information but I got a reply saying that you cannot receive messages. Maybe Kate or one of the other moderators can assist.
