showering with copd
This is kind of funny. I have gotten out of breath in the shower for a long time, so when I got oxygen I figured if I took it in the shower with me it might help and it did. Then I quit smoking and don't use the oxygen a whole lot during the day so I debated whether or not to try a shower with no oxygen. I finally decided not to take the chance. I took my shower and got dressed and when I left the room I realized my oxygen tank wasn't even turned on. That made my day

Has anyone tried Chelation Therapy for their emphysema or other lung problems? I am starting it next week.
I was diagnosed with COPD last year but I just found out that I'm in the later stages. I quit my job so that I could get disability. Now I have no money and have to be on oxygen for properly for the rest of my life. I smoked for 41-years and now I'm paying the price.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
