my name is Donna. I am 57 yrs old and was diagnosed with COPD 2 months ago. I was not aware I had COPD but I started to swell big time in my feet and legs. Went to the doctor who sent me to the hospital. Turned out I was having heart failure due to the lack of oxygen.
I am now on oxygen 24/7. 5 liters. Is there anything I can do so I do not have to be on oxygen all the time. I feel funny walking in public with the tube in my nose. Is anyone else going through this?
