he says he gets tired when he does simple tasks.does this suggest that his heart is also in trouble? is the mentioned drug safe for him to use?
My last visit to the doctor,I was told I had COPD. Mainly caused by smoking. It is Not the only cause but is the main cause. I was prescribed ADVAIR one puff twice daily & PROAIR HFA 2 puffs four
times daily if needed. And
yes,in whatever problem U
have with your LUNGS,the
first thing the doctor will say;
If U SMOKE STOP!!! It will No
longer be a suggestion or
request. He/She will demand
U or whomever to Quite. Of
course it's up to Us! And No it doesn't suggest his heart is in
trouble,though it can be. His Lungs ISN'T producing the Oxygen that's needed. Which sometimes can cause him to be out of breathe & tire easily,especially after heavy labor,exhausted. Take note; that this is only my personal thoughts & opinions. I'm not in the medical field. A certified medical professional/doctor can give U knowledgeable input/info that I would not have. Wishing him the best & ~ God bless ~
a knowledgeable & conclusive answer.
