RE: cpap and surgery
I wonder since I never am completely out during colonoscopies what would happen. I don't have to go back for 5 years but I do wonder about it. Then when in recovery, my husband is there making me roll from side to side to work out the gas they injected. I don't sleep there either and rally rather quickly. They give me something to eat and drink and then release me.

My husband on the other hand is completely out from the sedation. Odd how it is so different between he and I.
