Hi I have been on oxygen for over a year now 24/24 i been working hard on losing weight, rehab, and doing what is asked from me, they check often but i wonder, can one ever get to get off oxygen or is it to stay.
I don’t understand when people say they are on oxygen 24/7, then talk about mowing the yard or working in the garden. I have to sleep with mine on, and wear all day. I have a portable one that I have to use just anytime I leave the house. I check my oximeter often and can leave it off taking a shower. It’s even hard to cook with the tubing!!
Yip keep going till yer get calling card lol 😂
Have recently been prescribed 3lpm~24/7. For those already on 24/7, how do you handle Showering?
Second ?....Anyone have a Cat and issues with 'said Cat' poking holes in trailing tubing?
Was put on oxygen 24/7 back in February when diagnosed with COPD. Has anyone been on oxygen & "improved" enough to go off oxygen?
I have been waking up lately gasping for air. My lung doctor has ordered a sleep test. My question is. Could COPD and oxygen 24/7 lead to sleep apnea? I am already retaining CO2. Just wondered what the possibilities could be. Thanks!
I also get very tired all the time and am on o2 24/7 at 8 litres. When I eat I get like I am choking but can't bring anything up. Sometimes I will throw up mucus. Is this normal?
