Managing Cough with COPD

I have had COPD and really managed it well then I had a serious fall....... set me back. I got some better with physical therapy but got ill, got out of the habit. I am trying to get back to doing them but it is sporadic at best. I am going to be tested for eligibility for rehab and hope that will get me back on track. The isolation is hard and no one seems to want to be around someone who is not able to get out and around but am trying to cope. No one seems to understand.

I also see where must people have coughs and they are productive. I cough very seldom and on rare occasions it is productive. Does anyone have any ideas on this? I know it helps. I am on oxygen mostly 24/7 but that mostly has to do with my right side heart failure.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
