Hi everyone,

How are you today? I thought I would open this discussion to talk about pulmonary rehabilitation (PR)!

Have you ever done a pulmonary rehabilitation program? What did you think of it? Did it help you? What was it like? Would you recommend it to others living with COPD?

Feel free to share your experiences and questions here! emoticon cute

Take care,

COPD: Pulmonary rehabilitation

@Courtney_J Yeah, I did actually! My doctor referred me to one not long after I was diagnosed and I did it at a medical center not far from me. There were group educational classes and exercise sessions with a therapist. The trick is to really invest yourself into it as much as possible. I learned a lot about managing COPD and it was nice to have personalized support. I would definitely recommend it.
