    I have COPD, but currently no pneumonia.With only 30% left to me, my physical restrictions are similar. My biggest challenge is controlling mucus buildup. My Dr. will not support me with Oxygen either. To control the mucus, I take over the counter "Mucinex". It's not cheap (insurance does not cover), but without it I could not survive. 

    Insurance Co.'s sets the standards that the Drs go by. It is not how it should be at all.    

    • Posted that med for use only at nite.... That may work for me! I just want to breath. Why can't u get oxygen?
