he said i could walk (was wearing oxygen all the time except when sitting) without the oxygen without doing damage as long as i didn't go below 89. he said that was the new benchmark. i was very excited as now i can get up to get a glass of water or fetch something without the oxygen. i've been doing exercises for COPD for two weeks watching youtube and i can see a difference already. i've been diagnosed with stage 4 COPD (emphysema w/chronic bronchitis, chronic respiratory failure and dyspnea) so i was pleasantly surprised at this upturn.
