I just got the report from my latest x-ray, taken as a re-check. As for as lung cancer goes, nothing new showed up. That's the great news! However, the radiologist said that the COPD has progressed somewhat. I'm an active exerciser and the pulmonologist essentially threw me out of her office for being too healthy two years ago. I'm still going to the gym an hour a day and keeping up with most of the class. I still bounce up the stairs (all 4 flights) to the surgeon's office, though I huff and puff some when it is on the 8th floor. So what should I do? Wait till I'm in a wheelchair to treat COPD? is there anything I should be doing now before I'm unable to exercise? And no, I don't smoke and have never been around smokers, in case that is your first treatment suggestion.
