COPD and Emphysema: Want to connect with others
Hi @janrn1, you'll notice that I moved your message to an active discussion where you'll meet others living with COPD like @catcatanzaro60 @fracturedd @marczappa @bb729 @jgpolachek @mrbill @sews and more.
Jan, tell us more about you. How long have you been living with COPD? Are you currently on oxygen? What does life look like for you these days?

I was diagnosed in August 2015 while hospitalized. I have extremely severe emphysema and am waiting for other test results. I am feeling lousy and think I have at least 1 Dr who is listening to me. After many ct scans, 1 with contrast and 1 without I am clear for Pneumonia and a Pulmonary Emboli. I just started Augmentin, prednisone 15 mg, and budesonide through a nebulizer. I am grateful to be here with you all. Thanks, Jan
