    Other health issues have popped up in the years since my surgery. The latest is my COPD, which has progressed to the point that Im on O2 -24/7 & at high dosage.

    Other Care

    I am now in a respiratory rehab program to try to get into better shape & at least (Maybe) slow the progression of this chronic illness!
