    Hello,

    My Dad of 65 has been diagnosed with MDS for three years. Many friends and family have recommended that he has oxygen therapy to reduce his fatigue and improve his general wellbeing. Have any other MDS patients tried this therapy? Any comments would be highly appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Charlotte
