    Ok, so im the total non-stereotypical sleep apnea patienet. I'm 21, 5'11" 160lbs, in decent shape.

    Was diagnosed with sleep apnea about a year and a half ago, when i slept walked out a 2nd story window (ouch for the camry i landed on :haha:).

    I was put on CPAP (constant positive airway pressure ) breathign system at night, but i always pulled it off in my sleep. Next best option was surgery.

    Anyways, on wednesday, i had surgery to try and cure the problem. I had my adnoids removed, tonsils removed, soft pallet altered, and my tounge moved forward (GTA, geneoglasus (sp?) advancement).

    So now im recovering. Worst pain is done with, but now im just swollen and drooling and everything, its a pretty sight.


    Anyways, im dope'd up on narcotics, sorry if this post is rambling, but anyone else have sleep apnea or have any surgery to try and correct it?

    merry christmas everyone!

    Both the wife and I do, but that's partially weight and partially bad noses. :dunno:

    Hope all goes well for you -- drugged over the holidays can be ... odd.
