  2. Angy, had you ever had gall bladder pain before weight loss surgery? I have had pain but it went away as long as I watch what I eat... another thing to tell my surgeon before surgery! ughh
  3. wow so sorry! I wonder why they didn't take it out during your switch surgery? Unless you didn't have stones pre op? I am going ask my surgeon if he plans to remove mine. I have a couple gall stones so I am hoping he does and its safe.

    CPAP Nightmare?!?!

    I went through Apria and they said I had to be a person that breathes through the nose and keeps their mouth shut the whole time they sleep. I was like... I am not sure if I open my mouth or not... lol

    CPAP Nightmare?!?!

    Yes I do have the under the nose nasal mask. Tried it for a few minutes but wasn't too sure. I should try it again. Is that the one you are talking about Apple203?

    CPAP Nightmare?!?!

    i will have try to put humidity level on auto! thanks Apple203! at this point ill try anything. I am using a full mask and I feel like I am not getting enough air. So I turned the ramp off as the manual says to do if you feel you are not getting enough air. No difference to me!!!
