You can guarantee that you have some emphysema. ...
Just in response to the emphysema, at first you can still breathe okay. Eventually ...
We're both talking scary. But actually it doesn't have to be as bad as all that.
For my own case, I scramble in the mountains every weekend. I limit myself to 1000 meters elevation gain, or 15 km distance. Which is fine for me.
You can see my picture on my avatar icon thingy. That's me with the legs.
The mountains in the background are Exshaw, Goat, and Fable. Just beyond the picture's borders are Heart, Pidgeon, and Yamnuska. I've been on all of those summits, and I've climbed the crags on them, too. With bare legs that I don't have to shave.
