Hello members,

How are you today? emoticon cute

I thought I would open this discussion today to talk about emphysema!

For those who do not know, COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is actually an umbrella term used to describe a group of lung conditions that block airflow and make it difficult to breathe. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions making up COPD.

Emphysema is a progressive disease of the lungs caused by over-inflation of the alveoli (air sacs in the lungs). So, a person with emphysema has COPD, but not everyone with COPD has emphysema.

So, what about you? Do you have emphysema? How long have you had it? How are you doing today? 

T‍ake care,
