    That is a huge difference - 0.6L to 4L. Wow. I don't remember, were you on oxygen the whole time? Are you now allowed to blow up balloons?

    The only lung test I've done in the last decade or two is a peak flow test, measured in litres per minute. It's been so long since I did one that I can't remember any figures.
    Remembering 30 years.

    i was on 2 liters of oxygen about 98% of the time for the past 3 or 4 years. i started needin' it at night when i sleep around 1999or 2000, then gradualy needed it more and more.
    i could sit in church without it, and maybe eat out somewhere.... but as soon as i needed to walk i had to have the oxy.
    i carried little refillable tanks around all the time. they ran about 4 hours dependin' on how good/bad i was that day. i don't miss totin' them things around.

    i haven't needed oxy since 2 days after the t-plant. my oxy sats, oxygen saturation in the blood, are almost always 100% now, with an odd 99% once in a while.
    it was anywhere from 79% to 92% WITH oxy before the t-plant. doesn't look like much, but it's a huge difference.

    i'm not to the point of where i have forgotten what it was like to not breathe...... but that day is comin' soon.
    howdy from ohio!!

    i take upwards of 50 pills a day

    Is that for life, or will they get cut down over time?

    Will you be running any marathons soon? ;)

    the dosage of meds will decrease some over time.... but the amount won't change very much. in a year i may be down to 35 pills a day. i don't mind the pills though. i don't have any special equipment to tote around anymore, so "a few pills" in my pocket is a good trade for an oxygen tank!

    runnin' marathons....... probably not.
    i'm not much of a spandex type of guy.
    but i'm havin' fun ridin' around in my woods on my mountain bike! no spandex there either.... just wrangler jeans and cowboy boots.
    my biggest restriction is the strength of my legs.... but they're gettin' better.

    oh.... yeh i can blow up a balloon.
    i have a little exercise gadget that i had to blow through and keep the piston at a certian level for the length of a breath. it was harder than blowin' up a balloon.... depending on the balloon of course.
    anything that can execise my lungs is a good thing.
    i just have to have enough brains to not force somethin' when i feel a strain on my "stitched" areas.

    by the way.... today marks 3 months since the t-plant!! WOO HOO!!
