Patient Comments: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - Causes

What was the cause of your COPD?

Comment from: DaveB1, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: April 22

I smoked for about 25 years. I quit and I seem to have gotten better. I caught pneumonia twice one winter and never have been the same since. I have a mild case of COPD.
