After suffering for years with OSA+CSA, obstructive and central apneas and PLMD I had a trach. On ASV+oxygen and klonopin for centrals I felt ok but never had great energy or sharp clarity and focus.
I had 2 strokes and was off oxygen for a few months and only on ASV and my amara broke. I became weak and bedridden with no energy/motivation and had bad aphasia, words sounded like a blur, I couldn’t focus.
I’ve been on an 8mm shiley with klonopin for centrals for 2 months and I think I felt better on the ASV+oxygen. I feel dependent on oxygen now and I’m so weak on the unfenestrated trach that I can’t talk or type.
I’ve suffered so much with aphasia and being handicapped. I saw an old photo of myself and I could see that my oxygenation was much better
