CPAP FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE ?


Posted by RDA on February 12, 2001 at 19:05:00:

Today I had my final "follow-up" appointment with the Sleep Doctor. He said he was finished with me. No other action is needed. Just use the machine. "If you have any problems, give us a call". Now my question is, "Am I going to be hose sucking for the rest of my life ? " Everything is going
great ! I'm sleeping good ! (with the mask on - amen !) I feel better, and things have really come together. Will there come a time when I just put the machine away and sleep happily ever after ? I'm just not sure what's next.
I have a friend who's been doing this for 11 years. He intends to use it until he passes on ! COMMENTS PLEASE
