Hope it works out OK for you Jon, my husband suffers from it but not severe enough to need a machine yet although a friend of mine has used one for years.
Had no internet after this point, and forgot about it when i got back from the north.
To date it has been going quite good. Took a bit of time to get used to the mask, but no real probs with it now.
I certainly sleep better, though the dogs (2 staffy's) still manage to wake me when THEY think i should be up, lol.
The Handbrake reckons she can tell the difference. "Got my hubby of old back".
Don't wake up with headaches, so that is definitely a bonus.
Got an appointment with the cpap man tomorrow, just to see if everything is working out. Still need to go for another stay in hospital for 1 night WITH the machine, to compare vs the first stay.
In Aus, these machines are quite expensive, compared to the U.S. cpap $1900 / $2000. Mask around $275, and that are specials i found on the net locally.
