Hi @johnbishop, I seen my nurse today and she is setting up a referral to level 4 epilepsy center several hours away. She said EEGs are expensive and 1 a year would be excessive but also said lets see what the epilepsy center says. So the article you gave me hasn't filtered down yet. I'll take it with me to my appointment in September at the Epilepsy Center. It does make me wonder what an EEG costs and what the insurance companies have to say. I'll probably end up giving them a call.
She is also getting me a sleep study setup. We hope to have that done by the time I go to the epilepsy center. I am very tired most days so we both suspect the CPAP is not set correctly. She also told me today the neurologist who read my sleep deprived EEG said I was seizing every 6 seconds. A few more than the 5 per day I had estimated. No wonder I am tired and have trouble remembering anything, every 6 seconds I am rebooting. The reboot lasting 1-1.5 seconds.
My last two providers have had privileges removed from hospitals. In one case I fired the hospital and probably should have taken them to court but it isn't in my nature, and the other is why I asked the question. Given my first experience I have to think there is a whole bunch of reasons a doctor may lose privileges that have nothing to do with their competence.
I can answer the question regarding privileges. Please don't jump to conclusions regarding the experiences of others. I think you put a damper on anyone answering the question, perhaps that was your intention. Whether it was or not I can work around it so no worries.
Thanks for your time, have a good evening. Love the article you sent me. I always like it when the scientists agree with me.
