Yes,I went back. Once was for the test,than they fitted me with a mask and took the test again. I had to go with one that went over my nose and mouth.

I didn't have to go back for equipment, but things could have changed over the years. They did want me to go back from time to time to see what changed. After 3 or 4 overnights, I was out of patience. I can stay home and not sleep. I changed Drs. The insurance company wanted a new test for a new Dr, and the Drs office talked them into letting me do it at home. I did have to go pick up the machine, but that wasn't bad, just in the next town
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

I'm just got up from my 3rd night with the cpap. I believe I will like it. Sleeping good and over 8 hours a night, usually 5-7. I'm going to try the humidifier tonight maybe, no tried it yet.

IF you are not having a bloody nose in the morning, I would NOT try the humidifier.  It is a fairly high maintenance item.  You need to clean it regularly so mold does not grow in it.  If you want to go camping, most CPAPs can run off 12v, but if you have a humidifier, it will kill a battery in very short order - it draws quite a few amps to run the heater.
