Well, I have given in and now got myself a mobility scooter. This was because I really struggled, even on 5 litres Oxygen, a couple of weeks ago when I went to Newcastle with my husband (first time in Town this year). I mentioned this to my Respiratory Consultant and said I was thinking of either starting to use Shop-mobility or even to buy a scooter myself. To my surprise he agreed and said having one would be good for me.
As I now also have right sided heart failure on top of my Emphysema I am struggling and was beginning to feel as trapped as I was before I started using Oxygen. I still want to get out and about so this is one way to do so.
People in our local area though will have to be on alert though as I can't even drive a car!!!
It will be trial and error until I get used to driving this scooter. lol
