Hi everyone, I am in desperate need of help and advice. I have emphysema, and I have been paying off monthly for a much needed holiday for myself and my husband. This will be our last holiday abroad as I had to take early retirement on medical grounds and the work pension is almost a thousand pound a month less than what my wages had been! Anyway, I have to have oxygen for the flight, I think it was 2 litres a minute. When we went away 2 years ago, I had to arrange all this for the first time. Well, I have just found out that Thomas Cook (the airline we were with in 2016) are no longer providing additional oxygen on the plane! They have said that I can take a portable concentrator, and when I said I don't have one, they advised me to speak to my GP. So, does anyone have any advice? Is there maybe an option for me to hire one? Basically, if I can't get one to take with me, then I can kiss goodbye to this very much needed, not to mention expensive, holiday.
HELP!: Hi everyone, I am in desperate... - British Lung Foun...
I we are going away in September and need oxygen for the flight
I use a portable Concentrator at home but we are not allowed to take these out of the country plus they are not powerful enough
So I went to O2 we have got one for £345 pounds it’s more powerful it has a 6 hours running time I have ordered an extra battery so I can keep the oxygen going hope this helps .
