An overnight oxymetry showed that my O2 levels were still going very low even though the apneas were treated. They added in extra oxygen at night and that's when I started to get better.
So keep track of how you feel and make sure your doctor knows. If you don't like what's happening to you ask for more tests so you can get better treatment.
That's an excellent point. My doctor was more concerned with my SP02 levels than anything else, so maybe it's possible that my SP02 levels are still low, despite the successful apnea treatment.
Unfortunately my insurance won't cover the oximetry adapter for my machine, so it would be on my dime, and I imagine that is not a cheap "upgrade." Maybe I can get my doctor to prescribe another overnight oximetry test to test the effectiveness of the treatment from an SP02 standpoint.
