Rod, I neglected to respond to your Driving Home question … We live an hour away from Houston (60 miles).
I have driven home a few times after a PE treatment. But mostly (60% of the time) I don’t feel like it. I sometimes get light headed and just feel drained after a PE. Usually I feel good enough to walk to the car. My light headedness and bad feelings usually set in 30 minutes to an hour after the treatment. The light headedness usually passes within a few hours.
I have noticed that eating the snacks and drinking juice they offer after the treatment helps.
My wife has always gone with me and usually drives home.
Again I hope this helps… Gary
