"As of now I no longer have to use a chin strap. I am anxious about the sleep study. Wondering if I will be able to sleep WITHOUT the CPAP….even thought I hate it it is a part of every night now and is what I am used to.
"Thanks, Mary~ Fingers are crossed. My pressure is one point lower than when I began (7) and AHI is some lower (7 day average). I am anxious about sleep study as I have not slept without CPAP in 2.5 years!
"Last procedure done! This time he gave me meds to take before so less anxiety while waiting! For the first time I was able to eat normal food on the way home after the procedure. No pain after 12 hours. If it only works.…"
