Assess your oxygenation with pulse oximetry and if below 90% then use regular oxygen for 18 hours/day at a rate of 1.5lt/mt have preventive vaccination against flu and pneumococcal pneumonia. Join a pulmonary rehabilitation programme. Continue medicine tiomate mdi 2 puff once/day. Better keep in touch with resp. Phy.
