Lonewolf....Just to let ya know, I been keeping an eye open for any new episodes(lol) on your conditions. I'm more or less in the same picture as you are, even with the newly dx of sleep apnea (Central). Dr believes the cause is the opiates I'm on. Its in the serious range of 87.4 per hour. I take it yours is obstruction type? Anyway, I been limping since 1976, and still are, even after my total knee replacement in 88". At least it's been noted in my med file at the VAMC.
Since then I've been dx'd with severe lower back problems, neck, shoulders and arms as well, including sciatica infringement involving my hip, butt, legs and feet.
I'm checking with my Dr to see if my bladder has any relation to all of this. For a while now, when I get the urge to go, it's like it comes on rapidly with full force. There's no pre-warnings.
I truly hope the conference goes in your favor Lonewolf..
Like I said, I'll be watching your posts. Best of Luck!!!
