guys thanks for thefrank discussion...probably very politically incorrect, but wondering how much you guys weighed when you went for initial consultations...
I am wondering if I am wasting my time..
Age 60, 320 pounds, diagnosed a bout 6 years ago with sleep apnea and after four or five weeks of trying to sleep with the machine (IPAP? cpac? whatever?) I tossed it and figured it is probably better to croak in your snoring sleep than wrassle with the machine all night long...
My initial consultation for da Vinci is next Tuesday at Sloan Kettering, and I am just wondering if with all good intentions I am kidding myself that obesity risks trump modern science....I foolishly thought that an active lifestyle, living and working vigorously at 9,000 ft altitude, and eating to excess whenever I pleased made me "relatively" healthy until by PC diagnosis a month ago....
I guess any positive reinforcement is appreciated.
