hi group! I have had emphysema since 1998 after a bout of pneumonia and quit smoking at that time. It has progressed to stage 3, 32% lung function. Now on oxygen 2L 24 hours a day. This is all new to me. Just getting used to it.

      Hi uchick, I’m so sorry that this has progressed to this point. I’m afraid this will also happen to me. I stupidly kept smoking off and on between cigarettes and E-cigs for a couple years. I did eventually stop because I knew I was killing myself. I’d smoked for @45 years and it was sooo hard for me to stop but I stopped cold turkey one day and haven’t looked back in 4 years. I take Trelegy (mostly) every day and when I do forget, I can really feel that need it. Besides being on oxygen are you on any meds?

      Hey. I'm 22 years old and just got diagnosed with mild emphysema. I have to go see a pulmonologist to check my lungs.
