Have you tried to get disability with the COPD? Don't know what the limits are. I have Fibro and many other illnesses and know the pain of walking. Chronic fatigue, chronic pain, diabetes and high blood pressure to include a few. I start with very mild yoga. Stretching mostly, and 5 minutes of walking. After a couple of weeks move up to another 5 minutes. Use a walker if you have to. I do. It helps with the knee pain. Takes the pressure off my back and knees both.
Check with your insurance. Many plans do cover the surgery. Praying for you!
I thank you all for your information it is helpful and I will call my health insurance card thank you I appreciate your advice
