I have been a CPAP user for over 10 years now. I have gained over 100 pounds since 2001, but recently had weight loss surgery in November and have lost 75 lbs (so I will continue to keep losing for some time)
And tomorrow I am having surgery to have my adenoids removed because of recurrent sinus infections.
So here's my question(s)
1. When and if do I need to go in and have my pressure changed? Since the weight loss it seems as if the pressure is too strong because I'm breathing out of my mouth!! I haven't done that in a long time! Not sure what to do about that.
2. Although my ENT doesn't believe this will help, does anyone else have any stories about adenoids and sleep apnea? (I have to also add that I've been a snorer for many many years, even when I was at a very healthy weight.)
3. Last but not least, is it possible the weight loss and adenoid removal might not do a thing for my sleep apnea and I will have it the rest of my life?
Any comments or suggestions would be great!
