About Me: Female, 60, West Sussex, United Kingdom, member since Jul 2009
I work outdoors in a job I love, and have recently been undergoing PFT's etc after being told I have COPD. This all started last December with a flu bug that went on my chest and never left! Now on Spiriva, after Seretide gave me terrible nausea that didn't get better.
[More] Also use Salbutamol as and when.
I had the last of the tests today, so I should find out very soon the full grim diagnosis. Do I have the dreaded Emphesema???
Any help giving up the fags would be greatly appreciated! Handcuffs, anyone???
