I had the Pillar Procedure. It was so painful, I had to stop after he inserted 2 bars instead of the usual 3. My husband said there was a slight reduction in snoring but he still couldn't sleep. This was 7 years ago and I feel the bars in my soft palate especially when I have hay fever - it itches. I wish I hadn't done it. It didn't really work and it's annoying.

There was a lot of talk about it 10 or more years ago, and then people quit talking about it.

I've always assumed that the results just weren't good enough to make it worthwhile.
Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
