Question: I have CHF and have been put on oxygen for 24 hrs!. 7 days a week!. do you think I should still work!?
CHF is a very serious condition and your health status can change quite rapidly!. The fact that you are on constant O2 tells me you are very ill!. Most people that have CHF are also accompanied by weakness, tiredness, etc!. They spend most of their energy trying to breathe!. Unless you are absolutely strapped for money and have to work to pay living costs, I would not try to work!. Of course it also depends upon the type of job you have also!. IF It is totally sedentary with literally little to none activity, it might be possible but I would think most doctors would say don't!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I am not a doctor, but work in a hospital as a sleeptech with respiratory therapists - so I would say no, only until your health gets better (leave the oxygen or let your body get used to it for a while )!. It would not be wise!. You may get exhausted just by walking, ect!. Its not worth a risk!. So sorry!.

If you are able to work I think that you should!. That is for you to determine though, if you truly feel that you are not able to work then I would not oppose you being on disability!. Not that it matters what I think!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Do you want to!? What kind of work do you do!? If the answer is yes, then by all means!. Feel productive and do your job!. If not, take it easy and work on being well!. Your call!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

If you feel like you are able, go for it!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
