emoticon emoticon from SC. I hope you do well with your cpap machine. Surgery doesn't always work the way it should.

Richmo,

Sorry to hear about the disaster surgery.

As far as your pressure number, there is not necessarily a strong correlation between severity of apnea and the pressure requirement. So... find out your number and educate yourself as much as you can about your condition now. Hope the cpap works well for you!

The thing is, I lost all feeling in my lower face, can barely open my mouth, was in the hospital 2 weeks, intensive care an additional week, surgery was 18 hours long, flatlined in intensive care, could not eat any food for 7 months......things went HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

So if I did not even at least improve....I will be devasted! I cannot even feel a person kiss me and I am single!

So, I do not think I will react well if I had no improvement and lost so much.

This is not an issue of patient rights...it is emotional preservation.

You should ask. That is part of your patients rights. Ask for a copy like you would for another test the Dr,'s run on you. It is important to be aware of these things. as It may help someone else you meet who is struggling with the decision of their own. knowing others have done something and had improvements makes a difference to just knowing that.
Hope the c-pap makes a big difference in your life. i know mine has

Yes, absolutly ask; and in addition ask/require or demand a copy of the report to take home for your file. I am sorry to say this will not be your last time. You have something to compare the numer of apenas you have , the %O2 reduction and other statistics. This is no different than keeping your blood work numbers, you do keep thoes right??

For those who are not familiar with me I used a cpap for over a year, then had the jaw surgery to correct my sleep apnea, which was very unsucessful. Now 8 years later I finally went back on cpap. I just had my machine delivered yesterday...and I have not been back to the pulmulogist since my sleep study. I really want to ask if my pressure at least has improved since my surgery, but fear the answer....should I ask?
