How long do you live with chemical COPD?

I also get bronchitis and pneumonia really easy. I’ve been in the hospital 4 times since December.

  1. seek a second opinion if you are dissatisfied with your treatment plan. But remember, this is b not a curable disease but it is a livable disease. Keep moving as much as possible. Can’t do everything so know you’re own limitations. Good luck.

  2. Thank you. I just don’t know what to do. The hospital just doesn’t seem like they are clearing it up. I feel like I have pneumonia again in my lungs. It feels like someone is stabbing me in my lungs again and I can’t get my breath again

    1. Thank you so very much

      1. Hi Rhedmen7

        You have been through alot with 4 hospitalizations. Hopefully you will get to feeling better.

        You asked how long can a person live with chemical COPD. To be honest with you, I don't believe that I have heard that term.

        No one can predict how long a person will live. In the final days or weeks of life, they might be able to "guess", but that isn't always accurate either.

        I hope that you get to feeling better. Know that we are here for you.
