Pulmonary Rehab and Dr. Appointment

Thursday, January 31, 2019

I had a very rough go today at Pulmonary Rehab with the exercise portion, well I was having a rough go with my independent exercise today as well. The educational portion was on Oxygen Therapy. What really got my attention was when she was going over the symptoms of not getting enough oxygen and I am experiencing all of them! my Dr. appointment was right after rehab and I brought all this up to my Dr. She had the nurse walk me around at a good pace and up and down a flight of stairs and my O2 level went down to 84 which is not good at all. So the cramping and burning muscles, etc. is because I am not getting enough oxygen so now I am to be on oxygen 24/7. I have only needed oxygen when I am sleeping and when I was active. Which means my Emphysema has progressed some.
