My x-rays show my lungs with no room inside my chest cavity I forgot medical term could you tell me ,I was diagnosed with COPD. I smoked for 35 years and was diagnosed 1 year after I quit what's the best way to to do things without this shortness of breath.
Do you mean Emphysema? Emphysema is common with COPD, but not as what you described "lung with no room inside the chest cavity", so I'm probably wrong. COPD, if you feel out of breath you may start to use oxygen. In a long term, you may do breathing exercises, and physical exercises, both are helpful.
