I have been on home oxygen for 11and a half years. The Oxygen Nurse from my local hospital has tested my blood (from an ear sample), after going all night without oxygen, and has stated quite categorically that I no longer need home or ambulatory oxygen and that it would be removed from my house. I asked what she thought I should do when I get so short of breath - as I do after any activity. The response was to stop and recover and that oxygen could not solve or help my breathing problems caused by COPD! This has to be ratified by her boss (The Consultant) and my GP but it sounded pretty final. I am at loss to know what to do.
More NHS cutbacks?
