Great and thanks. Next, you'll tell me I'm older than dirt.

I'm not a doctor in real or fictional life. My posts include opinions based upon user experience regarding CPAP therapy and should not be considered medically professional direction or advice. Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a good first step. My recommended first steps include getting good walking shoes, 1 great cup of coffee, and a good GPS.

OK elderly man river here with a bit of an update. Still with high-moderate pain. Not too bad considering that pain medication is Tylenol and Advil's generic forms. Recently, I saw my primary care physician regarding pressure sores on my tail. Now attending wound clinic for remedy. Doc also gave scripts for a hospital bed, power wheelchair, and a gel pad. Insurance company seems willing to pay, as long as I find an in-network DME supplier that has appropriate equipment. I'm almost weaned off Prednisone, the cause of the osteoporosis that allowed my vertebrae to become vulnerable to the compression fractures.

Alright folks, have a very safe from the cold weather evening.

Dude! you are a few years younger than I am, and if you call me "elderly" again I'm going to hide your Depends.

They're pretty cool looking. I'll have to opt for a tamer variation though. Gotta go lightweight as much as possible. Go Coca-Cola!

I'll be 50 in June FWIW. And I had to attempt those Depends, but couldn't fasten them. Right after surgery, back muscles spasms caused a control issue... Sorry TMI...

Okay, you are a lot more than a "few"  years younger.  Safe to say you never saw the 50s or the JFK administration, and missed the Beatles and early Rock and Roll.  I was in high school when you came around...
"elderly" pfffft!

Damn kids! Stay off my lawn! (groundhog day reference)

Hmm how about a shoutout for the movie Groundhog Day? Would have disliked repeating stuff like Bill Murray's character.

Coffee

Nope, no '50s, JFK, Beatles, and early rock n roll. ''Twas born in June 1969 in a suburb of DC.

RE: Path to spinal cord stimulant implant begins
Groundhogs day I say. A new visit to a medical facility via ambulance to the ER for a dizziness and falling spell caused by over medication of heart meds (read ultra low BP) and the stomach virus. Attending physician removed those heart meds from my list, adding 2 others that prednisone caused me to have a deficiency of steroids in some way. BTW over medication was in following prescribed dosage but not necessary medication period.

So the last week was me livin' it up in Hotel Hospitalia

Coffee
