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.

@joelars– You are one lucky person! I envy you. Because of the lung tissue that I've lost due to lung cancer I do use an inhaler. There's a new one out that replaces QVAR and Spiriva called Trelegy. I only need to inhales a day, first thing in the AM! Even if there is nothing new that they might have for you, if it's been a while, I'd go for the check-up. If I've answered this post before I apologize. Have you called Mayo yet?

God Bless
