Emphysema is part of COPD, along with chronic bronchitis. Most of us have elements of both, so you've just joined the 15 million people we know who have COPD. it's estimated that there are another 15 million who have it but aren't diagnosed. So yeah, there are a lot of us.

Sorry to hear this. 31 is pretty young but if you listen to your doctor and respirologist, if you have one, you will be okay for some time yet. I was 58 when I was diagnosed with Emphysema and I am 87 now and still hanging in there. You can too, Just do as you are told by the docs and keep a positive attitude you should be good for quite some years yet. Blessings to you.😘
