Last Tuesday, I had a cat scan to determine if the spot on my lung ( since November 2011 ) has changed any. Went for discussion today, my lung Dr. says the spot is exactly the same, no growth or change...I don't have to go back for 6 months and that will be an xray. He also admitted He may have jumped the gun on dx of copd, I have not used the inhaler he prescribed for 4 months, and my breathing is easy, 98% oxygen...no shortness of breath...I'm sure that stopping the smokes has a large part to play in this...smoke free since November 1st,2011 Happy Anniversary to me and my lungs

...and a great relief, I'm sure that it has not changed.

Quitting smoking IS hard...so congrats that you did, and stayed quit...I quit booze and drugs 26 years ago and thought that was tough.....it was nothing compared to smoking...
