COPD and surgery
My father in law has COPD and was diagnosed 6 years ago. He was a three pack a day smoker for 30 years and quit and then recently started smoking again. He found out he has a hernia caused by the COPD. He has to have surgery and we are nervous about the anesthesia and his COPD. He is not on oxygen but uses inhaler and nebulizer daily. Has anyone had surgery while having COPD or know anyone that has.
