I have been waiting now 2 months to see a consultant. And still have no date. I pushed my doctor to refer me because I am deteriorating rapidly and my o2 levels are 84 when I try to do anything. I am going to ring to try and get a private consultation. Because my o2 is 92 when I am sat at the surgery and I have avoided a&e. She thinks I am stable. My question is does oxygen relieve breathlessness or is it just to protect vital organs. Just walking a few steps now is becoming intolerable. I have been to rehab. And learnt all the breathing techniques and I have the blf dvd for exercises which is good. So I am now looking for anything else that can help me. I am getting frightened and desperate.
