I have COPD but have not had to go on oxygen therapy yet. I'm thinking I will need to use it in the next year.
I use a c-pap to sleep at night, not a bi-pap as you do.I am on the same medications and use a mobilizer 4 times a day. I also use another medication
called Advair. It helps a lot.
As for getting use to the oxygen regimen I don't thing it will be very difficult as it means the difference between life and death.
I've been a slave to the c-pap machine now for 6 years and still have a rough time with it. I have to take medication to help me sleep,as the darn
mask on my face is not comfortable.
I also give myself weekly B12 injection and take frolic acid and D3 vitamins daily. Due to extreme pain from another condition I take hydrocodon and
it helps my breathing also.
Best wishes to you. Keep in touch and we can share our COPD experiences.
