How Long Do People Live In Lowest Level Of GOLD Standard For Emphysema?

How Long Do People Live In Lowest Level Of GOLD Standard For Emphysema?

I do use oxygen for sleeping, have had 2 flares this fall, and am enrolled by my doctor in palliative care. Just wondering who has any kind of idea how long people live? 73 years old. No interest in food, lost 10 lbs in 4 months, down to 95 lbs (at 5’1”). Using Breztri steroid inhaler.

No one knows the answer to your question except God. My story I’ll share last year my pulomary function test results Fev1 21% It had dropped when i moved here a year here. Prior to this it was (in Phoenix, AZ) my FeV1 was 35%. But i still talk, walk with assistance. I keep moving forward living each day as my last day. I cant dwell on when I’ll take my last breath but i give thanks for aeaking me sustaining me, so I can be at peace beyond our understanding experience with the Lord for everyday He awakes to spend tome with Him and spend as much time as i have with my precious granddaughter
I have been in hosital admissions in 23 months 14 i am on Oxygen 24/7,
I hope this helps by focusing on the present. You are in my prayers.
