I'm 78 - well, 79 this month. I was diagnosed years ago and have had more shortness of breath lately since I had a flare-up a few weeks ago. I'm trying to figure out things. I take combivent, advair, and spiriva as well as the nebulizer and have done 2 pulmonary rehabs at MGH in the last 2 years. I'm at the gym again, but have more trouble just walking around early in the day and I had 10 colds or infections in one year. Well that's it for now. - Bob M.
