Hi folks across the "Pond". My ancestors came from Sussex England from the 1600s.
I live in the USA, and have had COPD since the early 90s. Did not quit smoking even after my Dr. said I must. Finally after 5 tries I was successful quitting about 15 years ago. My pulmonologist put me on 2ltrs of liquid oxy in 2004, so now it has been 12 years and I am still on 2ltrs. At rest my levels remain around 97 saturation without the oxy. As soon as I get active it begins to drop, so I must hook up while I am busy. I use 2ltrs all night and off and on during the day. My lung capacity is holding at 20% currently. I am able to live alone, grocery shop, drive and walk on my treadmill daily for 30 minutes. Always have my portable oxy when I walk out the door. Recently a lung scan found a nodule on my left lung. Oncologist is keeping an eye on it. Has not spread and may never.
