Newly Diagnosed

Diagnosed emphysema 1 month ago.

  • By DRJohnson61

    I have been diagnosed with mild emphysema and
    quit my job as it was working with carbon fiber dust
    dust and chemicals. I also have RA so some symptoms
    overlap. What types of exercise would be most beneficial for me? All help appreciated.
