No, it won't go away and it can't be cured but with proper treatment she can live many years. I know you worry about her because the both of you have just now found out but I have known people who have lived for years with this. Why not think on the positive side. I have read many nice prayers that you have written for people, so keep your friend in your prayers. Keep a positive look.
When a person has COPD, they have two lung diseases: chronic bronchitis and emphysema. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in America. Once you have COPD, it will not go away. It isn't necessarily a death sentence, but as the disease progresses it can be very debilitating. If it is caught early and treatment is started lung function can increase. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. My grandmother had COPD before she passed away.
I am sure your friend will be fine as long as she takes her Medications and takes care of herself. I know that you are a good Christian and you will be keeping your friend in your prayers. I know a lady who has C.O.P.D. and she has been on oxygen for 12 years.
It can be very dangerous, she will have to be careful being around people with colds because she can get pneumonia, She can live for several years with C.O,P.D. And yes I have to be honest with you she could die with it. I have known people with this and the two that I did know who died passed away in their sleep. On friend had a smile on her face..............I think the Angels came to take her home.
Proper treatment can slow the progression of the disease but it can't be reversed. Most people with C.O.P.D. will eventually progress to congestive heart failure due to the stress of the poor respiratory function on the heart. It is usually the congestive heart failure or an episode of pneumonia, which is a frequent occurrence with C.O.P.D., that causes death. I will keep you and your friend in my prayers.
I''m sorry but it will never go away, it depends on how fast it progresses.I know first hand about copd I have it.She can have several years of good life but they will be restricted years. Worrying won't help but being there and helping her will.Their is know amount of money that can replace a true Friend. Try and take her out a person that has to tote a oxygen bottle around and have people wait for them get where they feel like a burden.Sorry if I have been to blunt
