have just been dx with COPD (#1). I'm 75 years old, non smoker for 30+
years. I've always been very active but a knee injury (meniscus) put me out of commission, and I wasn't active for some time. Suddenly, I'm S.O.B, and had a chest x-ray which showed a lot of scaring on both lungs???? So, therefore the dx. I'm on S.S. and cannot afford resp. rehab., so my husband got a treadmill for me. My question is, I don't know how to start a program that will accelerate to help me progress. I am now doing 15 min. at 2 mph, but that hardly feels like anything. At the end my pulse is only 100. Is there a website??? that can give me information, or perhaps someone that has gone through the same thing? I really don't want to give in to this; my garden awaits.
