Surviving COPD

In 1999 I had lung cancer and they removed one lung and cancer free. Quit smoking that same year. 2013 I began having shortness of breath and one day I just lost it and was admitted into hospital and a short stay but came out with a diagnosis of acute bronchitis and on oxygen 24/7. Had my first bout with pneumonia last year and have went through pulmonary rehab and now go through maintenance program. Learning everything I can to help me live my life as easy as possible. I will be 72 years old the 5th of October and live in Oklahoma City. Glad to find this site. Thanks
