I have been faithful in going to the gym for the past few years. I haven't been back since I had an exacerbation and got pneumonia last December. I was hospitalized with it and took me about 6 weeks to even begin to feel better. I feel fine now, except for feeling fatigued and a bit short of breath at times.

Could it perhaps be the medication I am taking? Furosemide 40mg, Theophylline anhydrous 200, as well as inhalers, Asthavent and Seretide.

Thank you so much,

Skin. I have changed brand names of cannula with no change. Any ideas as to reason or solution?
Have been seeing an ENT for about a month. Said I had a sinus infection and gave me some nasal steroid spray.and did a CT scan. Still not much change. Went to my primary last Friday and he gave me antibiotics and steroids. I already see an improvement. He said that my lungs are clear and sound good.. I still have the colored mucus (yellow, dark yellow, beige and dark beige). Is this normal for those of us with COPD? I am always scared to see the different colors..............
My chest xray showed "emphysematous changes". I have no symptoms and my PFTs looked good according to the tech. I have no symptoms. Still waiting to see Pulmonologist. Could the changes on xray possibly mean something other than emphysema? Or just showing early signs of emphysema? Had PFTs 2 years ago that were normal, and CT scan over the summer that was ok. I'm confused.
