Hope you love your oxygen as much as I do, I am on ambulatory 4lpm. They told me the oxygen was to keep my organs well supplied but would not help my breathlessness but I have found it has helped tremendously with my breathing I can do loads more in the house now, maybe it is psychological knowing I have the oxygen there if I need it.

Hope it works for you.

I had the same message re breathlessness but I have found, like you pollyjj, that my breathlessness does ease when I am on it. I thinks it doesn't work for everyone so they say it won't work to stop disappointment. Mind You I am on 8Lpm ambulatory - don't know how low my level went on the walking test but it must have been pretty low for me to be put on 8L. I do still get breathless but just not as much.
