Hi Godot! Good to hear from you. Like my name, I'm living in Alsace - 68! I'm not quite at the 60 yet but there are days when I feel way past it! I am fortunate enough to have a great généraliste and pneumonologue - great word ... don't think that 'lung doc' really cuts the mustard in English ... can you suggest a better name?!
so I had an overnight study with a hanging microphone under my nose that gave all the damning evidence needed for me to be issued 'toot sweet' with a CPAP. I am most fortunate in that I have a good relationship with my CPAP loan company, and a great local rep. There are at least 3 of us in the local anglophone community who have CPAPs - of which I'm the most senior (not sure that's a compliment!!!) - and it does help to share knowledge.
Don't let my being a pedant bother you too much! I need to find some way to exercise what's left of my brain when I spend a lot of time confusing my languages (night school!) and it's great to hear from another British CPAP user in France.
