Is there treatment for excess fluid caused from COPD?
My mum has COPD caused by 50 years of smoking (she quit smoking a year ago). Right now the only inhaler she uses is one puff on a rescue inhaler when she is short of breath, usually when she climbs into bed at night. She has a lot of fluid in her chest and coughs this up all the time, she sometimes throws up because she coughs so hard. We are seeing her doctor at the end of October for a flu shot, does anyone know if there is any inhaler or medication that will reduce the amount of fluid she produces in her lungs so she is not coughing so much?
