I was recently diagnosed with "mild" emphysema from a CT scan that was run for another reason. I have had a PFT however, do not yet know the exact numbers. Dr's nurse called and said it was mild and that the doctor had order combivent for me to take. I have again asked for my pft numbers, but in the meantime is anyone familiar with this medicine? Is this to reduce symptoms (as of now I have none) or is this to reduce further lung deterioration? If you are using or have used this drug please let me know how it has worked for you.
