    I am 84 and very active , or as active as my COPD allows. I would like to build up stamina though. How expensive is the rehab for COPD?

    Hi buckybuck and thanks for posting your inquiry. This is an issue that you should first take up with your physician. The doctor and his staff should be able to provide you with ALL the information concerning pulmonary rehabilitation programs in your area. Cost (to you) should be offset by third party payors (insurance and/or Medicare/Medicaid). Once the ‘business’ end is worked out, you should be on your way to accomplish your goals!
    Please check back with us and let us know how you’re doing. I thought you might find it helpful to review this material on pulmonary rehabilitation: https://copd.net/living/lets-talk-pulmonary-rehabilitation/
