Is it normal to have a large stomach from copd?

I don't drink alcohol at all. I do drink some diet rootbeer. I really don't eat that much, but I have this huge upper abdomen. It looks like I'm getting close to delivering a baby, and I mean that literally.

If anyone has information to share with me on this subject I would appreciate it. I am so uncomfortable with this stomach.

I have heard many people complain about this on the internet and they say it is a side effect of Spiriva like on this post: www.medschat.com/Discuss/Spiriva-weight-gain-side-effects-237840.htm

Think it is hyperinflated lungs not stomach.

I have a very large stomach to. I get so frustrated cause even though I have lost weight it still is big. I have been told I have hyperinflation lungs. I also have non-alcoholic fatty live and liver is twice itís size. I have even thought maybe itís the oxygen. It makes me uncomfortable and feel it causes me to be more short breath. I have emphysema.
