Surgery and COPD

Posted on March 26, 2018

Surgery is not used often to treat COPD, however, there are times that surgery is the only treatment choice for severe COPD. Discussing surgery with others who have undergone this process is best done alongside those who understand what you are going through.

On MyCOPDTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with COPD, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Surgery is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about surgery:

How much does lung volume reduction surgery?

Who's had LVRS (Lung Volume Reduction Surgery) and likes results?

Has anybody had surgery for COPD?

Here are some conversations about surgery:


I have had a double lung transplant.

Hope you are recuperating from the flu and starting to feel better. So sorry, this must have set you back from your Transplant testing.

Look up LVRS and see if it can help you.

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyCOPDTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
