I am also grateful. The soaring spaces in Gonda are so uplifting. What a healing atmosphere.

Thank you for writing such a detailed response. I am having cervical surgery NEXT summer and it helps to read about someone else's experiences.

Nov 6, 2018 · Cpap and sleep in Sleep Health

I have an Amara view full-face mask. I have discovered that the headgear straps tend to lose their grip after a month or so. This results in my tightening the straps and then getting marks on my face. Changing the headgear every month or so makes a big difference! No more marks!

I am so sorry to hear this. I have similar issues. Physical therapy helped me a great deal. Unfortunately, there is only so much PT and cortisone shots can do. Have you seen an orthopedic surgeon? Surgery may be an option to consider. Good luck.

Nov 4, 2018 · Getting Best Treatment following Sleep Apnea Diagnosis in Sleep Health

My CPAP mask has an easy-to-release clip that lets me detach it from the hose in order to get to the bathroom. I am also a type II diabetic who uses insulin at night. I eat a small snack before I put on the CPAP mask. Using the CPAP is cumbersome but I do sleep better.

Oct 30, 2018 · Removal of plate and screws from tibia fracture in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi,

I broke my fibula when I was five months pregnant. It was a spiral fracture so I needed surgery to reduce the fracrure by having a plate and pins. After my daughter was born, the swelling went down but I was still experiencing pain. The orthopedist removed the hardwarea year later and the pain disappeared. Good luck to you.

Good luck….have you been to Mayo before?

Oct 21, 2018 · Ortho surgery in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I am assuming that you are going to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. I don't think they would do surgery that quickly unless it is an emergency. I had carpal tunnel release surgery done at Mayo in Minnesota; I saw the doctor in January and the surgery was scheduled for March.

Good luck and keep us posted,
Helen
