I am 59 years old. Diagnosed with severe emphysema in 2012. Currently on 3 inhalers. Have home oxygen but don't use it probably as much as I should. Stopped working in 2018 due to difficulty getting up in the morning, general health decline. I weigh about 102 pounds on my 5" 7" frame. Have very low appetite but do try to snack on good foods as often as I can. Respirologist has sent my application in to Toronto for consult on possible double lung transplant. Went into resp. rehab program recently, doing at home program. Started going ok but I have tapered off. I have a treadmill at home. Was doing 15 mins. twice a day, but recently my energy dropped off and difficulty breathing. I sleep for long hours and sometimes awake 24 to 36 hrs just because "I can".
Just want to have other ppl with similar things going on in their life, that I can share/talk to. Hope I came to the right place
