gives me the tech manual that deliberately holds back info on how
to use the machine.
SO i wake up with a water boarding incident. It takes 3 months to see
my doctor to get the prescription to change it.
It takes ROTECH 7 weeks to change the pressure.
So i then realize i am a mouth breather so i get a .50c strap from ROTECH to fix the problem.
SO now i am waiting to get full mask to fix the leak problem. If that does not work that is probably it for me. I will go to the doctor and see what else i can do.
Honestly i wonder what the failure rate of CPAP machines is.
It has to be extremely high. I have put tremendous effort into weight loss
and getting this mickey mouse machine to work.
No one can tell me the effort was not there. Shaq comes on TV and says
just turn it on and put on the mask.
So when this new full mask fails and i am being realistic not negative.
Is surgery an alternative.
