I saw my sleep doctor today to get my results from my sleep study done on 10/4/10. I wasn't really surprised that my Ox levels were 80 during sleeping with no oxygen. When I wore the CPAP nasal mask my Ox levels were 88. My doctor said "I might have apnea" but there was no mention of any time that I stopped breathing". With apnea, don't you stop breathing for periods of time? He asked me what I wore during my hospital stay and I told him that I was on BiPAP and he mumbled that he would need extra documentation to get my insurance to approve it. With apnea, you either do or you don't have it, right? Correct me if I am wrong. I have an appointment to get my mask on Wednesday and I feel like calling it off, I wasn't given any kind of reading material on CPAP and I don't want to wear this at all, let alone, not knowing if it is helping or not. I might ask for another opinion, but I barely have enough energy to walk across a parking lot. I had a 9AM appointment and was seen at 10:15AM, which really disturbed me. I woke up extra early to be on time and for what, to wait for over an hour.
