Still on oxygen after a year.
I had Covid November, 2021. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital with a pulse ox of 68% . I had Covid pneumonia and ARDS. I was in the hospital over a month and 11 days were in ICU. My insurance denied pulmonary rehab. (Aetna). I was sent home in late December on 10L oxygen via nasal cannula. I’m an RN and refused discharge. I was not ready to go home. My sats were in low 80s and the trip home and up my stairs was a nightmare. Almost called the ambulance!
Now it’s over a year later and I’ve done my own rehab along with YouTube. I’m on 3-4L to ambulate in my home. I have to use a tank and Oximizer at 5L when I walk long distances…which is only about 50ft. Did anyone deal with this??? Were you able to wean off the oxygen?? I’ve had enough!!!!!
