Completely Off Supplemental 02 for a Year ;)


To share hope at a time when so many of us need it... I've been at end stage emphysema for many years now. After having to use supplemental 02 for two years, I was able to go completely off it for what will be a year 06/06/20 ;) Exercise, nutrition and stubbornness to battle and win are what did it for me. Recently beat and killed my breast cancer 02/19/20 with Cryoablation. Never give up. Prayers to all to Stay Safe!

Hi can you beat emysemia I thought you have it for life?

You can slow progression and improve your FEV1. I'm proof of that and I've met others. Exercise has to be daily - 30 - 45 minutes. Walking is fine Claramay.

Well done I'm trying to get off ambulatory oxygen. Have a good night and take care of yourself 😊 Bernadette xx xx 🌈

I am so thankful you beat breast cancer, and you got off supplement oxygen, Jesus is good and you stubbornness and hard work paid off!

I have been on supplemental oxygen for over a little over two years now. I have severe stage 4 copd. I have good days, and bad. I didn’t know anything about copd, until I was diagnosed with it, then reading severe end of stage 4, gosh that just scared me. I have been doing a lot of research, reading these blogs, have really help me. I just got of bed I had an flare up of copd, I had to get back on a antibiotic, and prednisone. I know the prednisone isn’t good for my bones, but breathing is more important, I am on Trelegy, nebulizer, and rescue inhaler.

I try and get out as much as possible, I go to doctors appointments, or I go to the grocery store. I have to try and do these things on my on, just to feel like I am human. It is hard some times, when I do get home I am worn out! I am determined to beat this copd, or at least improve it some. Congratulations to you!

Congrats to you! Keep up the positive attitude.

Jesus had his hand on you! Wow what a miracle, and I am sure the hard work and stubbornness helped also!
