Good on you! Not allowing illness to define your life.Hope it's a wonderful time,for you & your wife,& build some lovely memories! Xx


Great stuff. Enjoy your holidays. How did you organise a concentrator for your house in Spain, and how do you get your oxygen cylinders delivered to you whilst you are there. What type of portable concentrator did you buy as it has to be used for the UK and Spain.

A lot of questions, but I would be interested to know.


I have just bought a XPo100 portable still testing it before I venture anywhere.I too would be very interested in how you arranged the concentrator and bottle for your place in Spain.

PS,NHS do lend portable machines out for holidays.I bought one as I want to just get up and go without the worry of running out of oxygen. Bill
