I have COPD and thought my life was over until I went through a rehabilitation program. I don't I need oxygen yet. I learned I could exercise and many interesting, helpful things about living with COPD. Diaphragm is the best thing I learned.

I have COPD and I exercise with oxygen. I learned how to do this thru Pulmonary Rehab. They taught me how to exercise and use oxygen. These ladies were fantastic and taught me so much. Do you have a Pulmanary Care physician? If so, ask him/her about rehab. It's an awesome program. Hope this helps.
