Winehouse has Emphysema


Amy WinehouseTroubled singer Amy Winehouse has “traces” of the lung disease emphysema her father has said.

Mitch Winehouse told BBC Radio 1 that his daughter is “responding brilliantly to treatment” and expected to recover “completely” as long as she stopped smoking.

Winehouse has now been in hospital for a week, but she is still expected to perform at Glastonbury Festival and the Nelson Mandela tribute concert this weekend.

Emphysema is caused by lung damage and can start as mild breathlessness.
