Lung cancer

My husband has suffered with Copd for over 8 years this last 12 months have been the worst for him. He was on steroids non stop till about the end of August last year and now has been diagnosed with lung cancer. They won't operate as they say he only has a one in three chance of survival. Now he is on oxygen 24/7 so is virtually homebound as he can't walk very far as he gets very breathless. We are n o w only existing not living he was my carer for nearly 30 years so this has been a very stressful year for both of us. He has a concentrator for in the home but the portable one only has a two hour battery. Does anyone know if I can get a portable concentrator that has a longer battery life that is constant flow and not pulse. I would be grateful if anyone could help thank you for reading my post. Pam

So sorry Pam...๐Ÿ’•

Regarding the concentrator there was a pinned comment from BLF, phone their helpline, I think they help you with finding or buying a secondhand one..

Take care x
