Welcome to Healing Well! It definitely sounds like you're in the right place. There are many here who suffer or have suffered as you are. Glad you've joined us.
First, when you type, don't use all caps...in internet lingo capital letters=SHOUTING. I know you weren't shouting, but in any rate all caps are not allowed here at the forum.
Next, I agree that if you're suffering it sounds as if you might be a perfect candidate for surgery. I spent four years with very unhealthy lungs before I finally decided to try surgery. There comes a point where we've run out of other options, and that's when surgery makes sense.
I'm sure others will be by to add their thoughts and support.
