Ok, I've gone anonymous. I am a member. I made a mistake. I went to an AME without doing my due diligence prior. At least not all of it. Due, according to the AME, to my use of a CPAP, he deferred to FAA. What I have read here said, he would only have to see the cpap printout, see and state that I was well rested, and issue. I almost always use the cpap, 100% over last 180 days 6.9 hours avg. 95.6% over 175 days prior to that with 6.4 hours avg. I am a "rusty" pilot. Haven't had a medical for 10 years. I am on meds for cholesterol, and BP. Both are well controlled. Other posts suggest that he could fix anything mis-stated on the form. He didn't. The exam consisted of weighing in (235 6'2"), BP (normal 140/82), eye check (perfect, with glasses), see doc. He listened to heart and lungs, looked in ears and eyes, and squeezed my knees with his fingers??? I think I got a lazy AME... Just doing it for quick turnaround $$$, and perhaps not knowledgeable... He also does DOT testing for truck drivers and mostly bus companies. One of my diagnosies, resulting from a CT, was atherosclerosis... I went to a cardiologist at the time, who stated I DID NOT have CAD, NOR CHD. but the atherosclerosis is on the record, I listed it. How long until I find out how bad it is? How much more am I likely to spend? Frustrated.
