One surgery that changed my life

by John
(Buffalo Grove, IL)

After living with what turned out to be severe obstructive sleep apnea for a very long time (probably 20 years) I finally decided to address my problem about a year ago.

And after analyzing my options and attending two sleep studies, I was allowed to have my (enlarged)tonsils removed and my deviated septum fixed all in one surgery at the ripe old age of 47.

I think they wanted me to try the CPAP machine, but I did not like it and from day one my plan was to have the surgeries.

Unlike many apnea patients, I was not overweight and I was down to 163 pounds by the day of the surgery.

Today I am happy to report that my sleep apnea seems to have been 100% cured by the surgeries that were done!!

After reading some of these tragic stories today now I know that I am truly one of the lucky ones, but I should have definitely taken care of my problem way sooner because this can also take some years off the end of your life.

My solution may not be the answer for everyone, but if possible this is certainly something that everyone should at least look into because it worked great for me.

The recovery process is not easy and it takes a full two weeks before you can go back to work (in my case), but it was worth every minute of it and the quality of my life has improved dramatically.

I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.
