I am going for an assessment for pulmonary re-hab on 27 April, but unfortunately, due to 3/52 hospital admission with severe chest infections, both right and left lung, I now have to use my oxygen on exertion 24/7. Has anyone done pulmonary re-hab with their portable oxygen on their back?

I was recently seen by the specialist oxygen nurse and we were in agreement to wean me off my oxygen, I only used it at night. Unfortunately, I was admitted to hospital for three weeks with severe chest infections, both right and left lung. Since my discharge, I've been on oxygen 2L, 24/7 and I also have a nebuliser at home now.
