Hi guys, I've just joined hoping to get some opinions. My mum has COPD/emphysema and consultant has just advised oxygen and respitory physio as the next step. She's waiting on an assessment for oxygen at home and date for physio. We knew oxygen would come at some point but I honestly thought it would be a lot later on (to the point where she was constantly struggling to breathe instead of good days and bad days). But anyway, I was wondering anyone's experiences with oxygen, I think she'll be on it 16 hours out of 24 as to what the consultant said. Is there a lesser more manageable dose and how much of a life changer for both of us is this? Thanks in advance.
