....has anyone had to stay overnight?
For my one replacement so far I stayed overnight. That was a function of my doctor being delayed getting to the hospital until after lunch time (flight delays, I think). I was FAMISHED when I woke up that evening having fasted since the night before.

Re: I'm tired...anybody got any ideas?

Maybe I recovered faster from my apnea than you're doing, Robo. I went from over 90 events/hour to 1.5/hour, and in about 6 months went from exhausted and needing 10 hours between the normal nighttime sleep and 2 or 3 naps during the day to thriving with just 7 hours at night plus an occasional nap ...

Re: Pre existing conditions and insurance

Everyone: Well done, so far! You're sticking to the stated topic and are not aiming insults at anyone, including the politicians who have created the mess and are trying to fix it.

Re: OT: Research on "Anonymous Online Board"

I think this is much ado about nothing. How many studies have we seen that contradict previous studies such as the recent one about mammograms? Or what about the safety of caffeine, and think of it like this...We all know that ICD manufacturers give advice to ask for a pat down in stead of walking ...

Re: OT: Research on "Anonymous Online Board"

Y'all do know that part of being a moderator is watching for stuff that could get the board in trouble? I'm not just here to referee fights or stop political debates. I'm even watching for people trying to get us to buy products or sign up for a multi-level marketing opportunity. https://i.imgflip.c...

I concur with Robo's advice. Something is wrong and you need answers ASAP.

Re: OT ?

Here's another OT question, but I think it's related to our health issues today: What's causing the increase in suicides? https://image.politicalcartoons.com/211806/600/600_211806.png As this political cartoon presents it, many of the traditional reasons people give for suicide are not happening in ...

Re: OT ?

I did not get a questionnaire. Could your questionnaire personally identify you? Or was the insurance company just testing the waters? Everyone is turning 65 and everyone is joining Medicare. What are they going to have to cover? If, as the article I mentioned claims ( https://www.publicintegrity.o...

Re: OT ?

This is/was a legitimate concern I had and wondered whether others were seeing similar inquiries. In retrospect were I at the top of my game, I'd have realized once again it would turn to bull s... politics which was not my intent. We here in the US are saturated with divisive politics 24/7.

Re: OT ?

I have not seen such a questionnaire. As for eliminating pre existing conditions as it is known No politician who wants to be reelected would ever vote for such a thing. Get real! Thus we have that from the highest authority. You are over reacting. For the reason of being re elected, this country w...

I'm merely a diabetic with heart issues (LBBB caused the SCA), I was making visits every 2 hours during the night. Although I've brought my diabetes under control and don't take P pills, I still make those visits. The good news is they're looking for at least 4 total hours with the CPAP during the n...
