Traumatic COPD Did Not Stop Faiza

Overview

Faiza was an active participant in Annual Marathon hosted by her company. Like every other year, she was ready to run 5 kms and complete the marathon. As she started running, after a while, she found herself gasping for breath. She stopped to catch up her breath and relax.

Later, she continued running and completed the marathon. Since Faiza did not experience anything again, she continued with her routine life. However, over the next few weeks, her breathing worsened.  

Faiza spent the next two months in and out of hospital with chest infections. At times, her breathing would become so bad that she could barely bend down. Worried with her deteriorating health, Faiza's daughter brought her to Sharda Hospital.

Faiza was directed under the supervision of Dr. Ashok Kumar Aggarwal, HOD, Internal Medicine for further diagnosis. The doctor advised LFT, CT scan and x-rays to determine her condition. The test results stated she had Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and bronchiectasis, an abnormal widening of the air sacs in the lungs.

The news came as a shock to Faiza as she never smoked or consumed any substances that could lead to such condition. Instead of distressing about the condition, Faiza decided to stay determined and strong.  

Dr. Aggarwal scheduled her on a treatment regimen which included six different medications and a nebulizer. He explained Faiza, if her condition does not show any improvements; she may have to consider surgery.

Gradually, after six months of treatment, Faiza started feeling normal. She was able to walk without fighting for breath and feeling tired.

"Mamma is doing really well now. She completely followed the instructions of the doctor and made progress within a short span of time." - Asma Alam (Faiza's daughter)
