He sent in for 500 mg. for 90 days. Then I see that it will cost me $447.00--I said no thanks!! Is this typical to pay? Is it really a difference maker in using it??

Mine keeps getting all twisted. I'm only on oxygen at night. Keep the compressor in the other room. The hot keeps twisting and eventually causes a pinch or fold. I straighten it out every couple days. This is the first hose, only 6 months old.

Fortunately I was not on a ventilator. The whole time I was there the Drs.and respiratory dept. wanted a sputum specimen but I could not get it past my voicebox. So my Dr. ordered a percussion vest. Has anyone used one and if so what can I expect? I have to wait a month before it gets here.
I'm trying to get a transplant, I've been on diazepam for 20 yrs & the transplant at BJC wants me to quit my Dr said to ween off so I am doing that & I got tested again & it came back positive so I think they might take me off list is thated alright for them to do? I am end stage so it's a life sentence if I don't get accepted
