My husband, who is only 49, has been diagnosed w/COPD since 1998. He is on numerous medications which includes spriva, lasix, flomax, dilantin(for seizures), MSIR, Mscontin, Restoril, Theophlline, rotating antibiotics, nebulizer treatments, valium, and cymbalta. He has starting coughing up quite a bit of blood. His lung dr. told him to take his antibiotics. his nurse told me today that he might need Hospice. No one has told us anything. his lungs sound crappy(thats the extent of what the drs. tell us). His right side-right hand, arm, let and foot are swollen up most of the time. he gets very disoriented which is the one thing that really gets to me. he is dizzy all the time and always falling down. Any suggestions??? Does anyone else w/COPD cough up blood also? My father-in-law passed away from the same disease but I never heard of him coughing up blood. His stomach stays bloated all the time which I thought was from not moving around but it actually looks like a big baloon that if you stuck it w/a pin it would pop.We have had scarry episodes in the past but this is really starting to scare me. He has been acting so strange lately.
