COPD exacerbation: How long does it take to feel better?
Hi @marley1 and welcome. Did you have 2 exacerbations in 6 weeks, each requiring you to be admitted to hospital? According to the American Thoracic Society, it can take a month or longer to recover completely. See more here:
Do you know what caused the exacerbation?

Hi Colleen, yes it was two times in 6 weeks. It was my first experience. They said they thought it was caused by anxiety and I had a panic attack. First time with panic attack and I thought I was having a heart attack. Thanks so much for the quick reply. I am getting better every day!
