Hi I'm just new here.
I don't know how to put this but yesterday I seen a heart specialist and he told me I've only a year to live maybe less maybe more. Cos I've a strain on my heart due to having too much blood in my body and its put a strain on my heart along with my lungs already having a strain on it..Has any 1 else had this too much blood if so how were u treated for it..? I never heard of this before till I was told mine was too thick.. I'm still trying to come to terms with this news. Telling my children has been the worst thing I've ever had to tell them.
How has your experience been navigating the healthcare system as someone with COPD?
