Doctor says I may have emphysema. Has anyone been diagnosed with that? Thanks

      Good luck nandina and Joyce2. My emphysema is mild right now. Some days worse than others. I take fluid pills due to heart. Some days the fluid pills seem to make it easier to breathe.

        @look Guess I need to get that breather. Rather I end up having emphysema or not sounds like it would help.

        @look I’m supposed to have tests Thursday and then see doctor the following Thursday for results. I have never smoked nor do I have any relatives with emphysema. Do you have much shortness of breath?
