@girlbybay thank you for responding to @blueheeler309’s inquiry about chest wall surgery.

I would like to take this time to check in on you both as well as some other members who have taken part in this conversation on COPD and emphysema.

@girlbybay, how are your COPD symptoms? Have you been able to manage them well?

@blueheeler309, did you end up having the surgery? How have you been feeling?

@bb729, have you been able to make the switch to tudorza and Symbicort? If so, have you had any side effects?

@waterboy, how are you treatments, the three nebulizers, 2L of O2 and an antibiotic affecting you? Are you experiencing side effects at all?

@gypsyinthehood, how is your husband? Have you been able to find a medication that your husband isn’t sensitive to?
