Hello fellow hose heads :-)
Thanks for all the helpful comments I've had a busy week and just getting back to the board.
Ill read back over tomorrow and try to take all advice in and understand it a bit better than tonight as I'm pushing to clock and need to be hooked up hosing and sleeping :-)
Since I've last post:
* now have heated hose ( Woo-Hoo luv it )
* trying a Bella mask with nasal pillows
I've worked on the leaks and have managed to keep leak level 0 for past few days :-)
My AHI for last night was down to 4
Ill give more through numbers tomorrow when on pc I'm on ipad now and software on pc
I'd love to post some of the pages but think maybe my being a new member doesn't allow me to yet?
The med supply RT ( DME? ) brought the hose out and new mask. He said my card goes to my doc and he reviews all the data info (so I feel good knowing that) he told me to give him a call mid week when he'd had a chance to read the most recent. He swapped my card for a new one and said he was sending that one to him
I'm feeling good about getting the leak level to 0 and feel from what I'm reading from y'all that's the only true way to distinguish what is and isn't caused from leaks.?
So working hard on that and being compliant with keeping the mask on at night. I'm just past 30 days and feel I'm making ground and feeling much more positive.
I'm not as tired as I was and am adjusting some to having a mask and hose on my head while sleeping - fighting it less. I'm determined to get to the point my ahi is 0 or as close as I can get.
Still having tiredness during the day, and a couple hour 'get it together' time after waking. For the most part though I do feel better, and mental clarity is returning. Feeling very hopeful last couple days I can see the prize ahead of me. It is all thanks to the advice and compassion and encouragement I have received from all of you here at this board. I thank you and wish all of us a good nights sleep! :-)
Ill get y'all some numbers tomorrow and see what ya think.
I'm still planning a visit to the doc and plan to discuss with him my being involved with awareness of my data so that we can work together for the best outcome.
Again, I really thank y'all!
