Hey Nancy. Everyone is different so there is no one that can tell you what your life expectancy is even though that is what all of us want to know. Just keep staying as healthy as you can and as active as you can and try to stay positive and do things you like. there are people that live years and years with stage 4 COPD so just keep living. See the glass as half full and not half empty. Hang in there and get busy doing the things you like. Easier to say than do but honestly people are amazing and scores on tests just cannot tell you how long you have.
