Hi everyone, today I had an appointment with the pulmonologist. I have been having some issues lately, and his nurses always take my pulse-ox at rest. Needless to say it is always good then. So I asked for a reading with exertion and we walked about 15 meters and I walked 1/2 of a flight of stairs and my FIO2 dropped from 96% to 78%. Finally he saw what I have been telling him all along! This is what I find so discouraging! Because when I get an appointment it is usually by the time I have started feeling better And my FIO2 doesn't drop so rapidly. And after years of telling him that is how I feel, but he looks at me like I am crazy! Now after all of that, I just get some antibiotics. I will end here, SOB, hurting and exhausted. Take Care to my friends across the pond. ☺ Nadine
