Traveling long distances
I signed up for this group about 1.5 years ago when first diagnosed with IPF. My O2 level was always OK up until about a month ago with my last PFT. Now, I use oxygen for sleeping (set at 1.5L) and I only use it during the day when my O2 level is down, usually winded from working outside or some other form of activity. Most of the day I don’t need it. Here’s my question: my wife and I would like to go to Europe for a 15 day river cruise. Has anyone in about the same “stage” I’m in with the disease, done a trip overseas? Being on the west coast (Reno,NV) would make for a long flight to get there. I’ve already done a domestic flight with my POC (SimplyGo) with extra battery. All went fine. I’m looking for anyone’s experience with traveling long distances without having to be on oxygen 24/7. I am aware of the fact that things could change for me rather quickly, or, it could be this way for a while. Thanks.
