... diagnosed today with stage 2 copd..had symtoms for over 2 years and just looked into it..I was prescribed with breo which is an inhaler.. Anybody have any suggestions or anything else that might help me with breathing and others.. This is a big hit to me and I'm stressed out
Wow Justin, that is really tough. Especially at your age, I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't have any experience with COPD, but what I can say is there is a member on here that is a pharmacist (or retired maybe I can't remember off hand) but he is extremely intelligent, and very compassionate. He would be the person I would look up for advice on this site. There are actually a lot of really good people for advice on here, but with his pharmacist background I think he could really help you. You can search for members, or he is one of my friends if you look at my profile and find him that way. If you add him as a friend you should be able to ask him a private question. I wish you all the best, and hope you are getting the very best care possible.
Hi Justin, My name is Charlett and I have COPD for 20 years - very well acquainted with all aspects of this disease. You are very young to have this diagnosis. If you would like I am willing to create an open two way conversation with you about this diagnosis, your symptoms, what tests
the doctors ordered for you, and any other conditions you may have, including prescription medications. Did a pulmonologist give you this diagnosis and did you get a second opinion ? If I can help with a de-stress
for you, clarifications and suggestions I am more than happy to do so.
Please feel comfortable to write to me and I will respond with as much information and experience as I am able to. Sending good wishes to you.
