Both my dad & brother both suffered terribly & my partner has it too! (Have had a long history of counting whilst waiting for someone to start breathing again!!) lol
Anyway, my partner has had the op to have the roof of his palate shaved away, which hasn't helped (same as my brother) unfortunately, in the Uk we don't seem to get quite as much help as u guys in the states, and my brother (who lives in Florida) has sent us over a Cpap machine for my partner to try out!
Now.....all I need to work out, is exactly what controls do what exactly, so that I can help my partner monitor how well it is helping & what the optimum setting is for him!
Now, I realise you guys can't tell me what will work for him.....but if any of you could give us some advice on what has worked for you, & what settings do what etc, we would be very very appreciative, as both him & I are absolutely exhausted!!!
We have finally got him an appointment at a sleep study clinic at the end of this month, but I realise that as its an initial appointment they are unlikely to do very much for him then, & we will probably have to wait another couple of months for another appointment!! (the wonders of the NHS)
Thanks in advance
