After I had my radiotherapy it has left me with emphysema I am supposed to have rehabilitation exercise but I am on a waiting list it's been nearly a yr now I used to take lisinipril but my general practitioner changed it to canderstan to see if it helps it doesn't I still have a really bad cough, and my chest and ribs hurt me every time I cough I get very breathless when I walk to the toilet to my chair
