I have recently been told by a pulmonary specialis that I have COPD. I had ARDS 5.5 yrs ago and was on a vent for about 11 days in a coma. Prior to that I had smoked for 30 yrs. Not a one since. The 2nd time I saw this Dr. he was looking at the results of my CAT scan and said he saw 2 spots and said, "What do you expect when you smoke drano?" I was so devastated by the news and how awful he was, he did not even look at me, I could not ask him what on earth he meant by that. Is drano, or draino one of the 4000 chemicals they have found in cigarettes? Or is he confusing me with someone else? I have pictures to bring to him of my involvement in a government sponsored campaign to help people stop smoking - I was 15 months out of my coma & I always told people it would take a coma to get me to quit again. Now I watch what I wish for. Please shed some light on this because I do not know how to approach this doctor.
