COPD exacerbation: How long does it take to feel better?

Merry,
In general I am not doing bad at all. Considering the COPD, Cancer, and a few other health concerns. I just go about my day trying to keep up. Like mowing the grass, weed trimming, etc. Went to grocery store for curbside, drugstore, swept the garage, and cleaned out inside of two cars today. So I try and keep up. I can't sit on my duff unless I have a good book, maybe a glass of wine to go with it. It really bothers me though when the kids tell me to sit and take it easy. I dunno, must look worse than I feel.
I really do not need rescue inhaler unless it is one of those muggy days. Then if I take it easy I am ok without inhaler.

Fracturedd,
The Nurse told me they had to wean me off Prednisone. Was taking 30,they dropped me to 20 for several days, and on till I got too five. I had some issues when they went from 30 mg to 20 mg. But it cleared.

@mrbill– Good morning. Kids will tell parents to sit even if they have a cold, lol. I don't venture out on muggy days, it's like walking through water. I live in southern New England and our summers are not fun now because of increased periods of high humidity. A few years ago we installed a new heating/cooling system that has HEPA filters from CARJON. When I'm inside and the air is turned on it's as if I don't have COPD or lung cancer and that I'm not missing so much lung tissue. When we have the heat on I don't get stuffed up and it's the same feeling and I'm toasty warm.

Have a wonderful weekend.
