I ve been put on oxygen long term starting with 15 hrs then 24 /7 I know there are lots of people have to do the same and I would like to know how you felt when it happened. My mind is working overtime thinking all sorts of worrying things the oxygen nurse is very helpful and did admit she sees that many on it and forgets to reasure the patient as so many get used to the relief it can bring.
The main problem is the noice from the consentrater I live in a flat with my husband who is finding it keeps him awake and the lady in the flat below can hear it so that is just making me feel stressed even though it's not my fault. I would appreciate tips to solve this Airliquide say it's the only one on the NHS .. I was on ambulatory oxygen the past 12 months but a chest infection has made IPF worse .and my sats are dropping a lot. Thanks
