CHRONIC EMPHYSEMA

Thanks. He was a very heavy smoker, but had already stopped 16 years when he got the diagnosis, but (as we all know) the damage was already done.

You have no idea how more anti-smoking our family has become, especially my mom. We were already anti-smoking, its just increased more!

Yes. Although the outcome ( in its various unpleasant possibilities ) starts to improve as soon as one stops smoking ( and stays stopped ) it takes many years for the risks to drop even near those of a non-smoker.
