Hi dave , i have the same experience as you "left to get on with it".I am on my 4th or 5th mask now and still find i cant sleep all night with it on, i was having  60 apneas an hour when first tested. Ihave been given results from cpap machine once, so i currently dont know how many apneas an hour i am getting now. Last visit i was given another mask to try and was out the door in 10 minutes, not a very good experience mate.
