What symptoms are there
The symptoms of "final stage" COPD are often the same symptoms you experienced at other stages; just intensified. If you are usually soc, that often gets worse as you age and your lung function decreases, even if it decreases at a normal and not an accelerated rate. That increases your heart rate and can lead to heart disease. Coughing and mucus production often increase, leading to more meds to help you cough the junk up and out. Those are just examples, but if you think about your symptoms now and what they were like several years ago, you will begin to get the idea. They aren't all the same for everyone; most people are quite different. Also, don't forget that there are people who've been at "final stage" for years; you could be one of those........
Franci : I don't know how to respond to your post. Is it a joke , tongue in cheek ? It is clearly wrong and even in jest, totally inappropriate. Beds and ICU's are being fought over by non vaccers and people who are taking malaria meds or animal meds for the covid19 for which they have no benefits and could kill you. These inconsiderate people are taking up valuable beds from people who deserve them. Good luck if you need a transplant or have a heart attack !!!
If you look at covid symptoms; it's like a bad cold and the gastrointestinal flu combined...completely survivable...get Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine🙂
Do Not go out and try to purchase Ivermectin. This stuff is rumored to help. It’s actually very dangerous. I 100% agree with you Avo on this.
It is an animal dewormer. Please don’t use this.
I'm in a Facebook group and many of those with COPD have been in the so-called "final stage" for 20+ years.
I, for one, believe the above two words should be abolished, for everyone is different.
What I do find alarming is the number of younger people who are getting COPD.
Since fewer people are smoking, I'm beginning to wonder what else is causing this disease.
In the meantime, the best thing you can do is force yourself to be active as much as possible.
