"Normal" O2 sat is 98%.  Docs don't really care until it drops below 96% and some below 93 or 94%.    You and on the cusp and should talk to your doctor about this sometime this week.  Hypoxia is not an issue until the mid 80%'s, so you are ok for now, but it does sound like your meds need to be tweeked.

Take care and feel better.

MZ means you are a carry of alpha one antitripsone. I am also one.
If you don't smoke you will be OK. If you smoke you really have to stop.
If you have children they can also have it.
