Does anyone else have bowel issues?

I’m on O2 24/7 @ 5 LoL, stage 4 at least. I’m having trouble with my bowels trying to loosen when I walk a few ft. and I’m struggling for air. Is it just me???

    Hi BestiCanDo and thanks for your post/inquiry. As you can see, one of our members have already chimed in in response to your question. (thanks, nena56!)
    You may be aware that frequently, other medical conditions can accompany COPD. The term for that is ‘comorbidities’. Since you described symptoms associated with your condition, and indicated this is a concern of yours, I would suggest you speak with your physician about this. The doctor may be able to help you to manage this. What do you think? Leon (site moderator)

    I have colitis! That’s why I have bowel problems! I haven’t yet had problems with breathing. I wonder if you are having a flare up? You should get in touch with your doctor.

    Nena56, I have IBS, it’s not that, it’s different. I’m going to speak with my Dr about it. I really appreciate your time. Thank you : )
