    thx for posting this video, yesterday i was offered Pulmonary Rehabilitation as i’m having some serious problems i’m 36 and have a FEV1/FVC ratio of 41%, its dropped by 16% in the last year and this is all due to years of heavy marijuana smoking, was told i have a lung age of 109 too it’s quite scary thought because if keep going the way i am i aint going to have much more time on the planet.

    after a year of begging they’ve finally approved PR for me!!!! One month into it and I’m walking further than I’ve walked in two years.

    I feel like my Pulmo finally believes I’m worth something.

    I have my o2 concentrater on my walker. I can tell by the way people look at me that I look pretty wacked. LOL But I don’t care. I wish I had the money to have PR though. It’s different with a group.

    My intercostal wall is inflamed from the plaque on my lungs from asbestos exposure. So breathing is very painful. Especially when I’m breathless. But if I take enough pain meds, I’ve been able to walk for 20 minutes now. Fortunately, I only have to drive 3 blocks to get to flat ground.

    Thank you so much for this video. People don’t know what it’s like for us. The fear of becoming housebound. Unfortunately I live in the US. I’m a medicaid patient. I’m of no value to our society so getting a Pulmo to help me get PR as a big Black woman is pretty much out of the question. I demanded it when I had an HMO. I friend told me about it, not my pulmo. It was great.

    The few sunny days we’ve gotten here in the NW have made it possible for me to walk on my own.
