@joelars– Thirty-five years. I smoke very heavily. I was diagnosed at 51yrs and am now 72 years of age. Please don't jump the gun and think that something will happen. Have you seen a pulmonologist to see if you have COPD and to treat it?

When I quit 14 years ago I saw a pulmonologist and was diagnosed with COPD. My response was to work-out daily, including yoga, weights and running, (actually slow jogs) every other day. I'm not really on anything.albuterol occasionally. the doc didn't seem to have an answer. He also wasn't very concerned and hasn't seen me in years. He thinks I'm doing fine.I would like to get a thorough work-up at mayo.However, I don't think they will have anything to offer someone who functions as well as I do.
