      The lung cancer can definitely have something to do with it I have sleep apnea and CHF my lungs fill with fluid most times I have to sleep in a sitting position

        @Lynda76 oh my goodness! Prayers and blessings to you. Feel very blessed that I take no meds and only do oxygen at night.

      My pulmonologist did a sleep study and my oxygen dips down into 70s so was put on night oxygen. Daytime is good. Any info on why this is??

      yes i did post transplant. the only thing i hated was it would make my nose extremely dry in the morning or sometimes cause a bloody nose. luckily i was only on it for a week.

      Don't know I've never been on oxygen I've met non smokers tho on it but also you just shouldn't smoke or breath crap in ur lungs!

      What is the reasoning for it to drop? Is it Covid related?

      • LaDayna

        @crzy1 , not covid related. Gaining 20 pounds in 6 months and not being active enough.
