Moderate Sleep Apnea



Recommended Posts

Cigna again denied my overnight sleep study. They said they will approve an Apap machine if my doctor request it. Does anyone know how long that treatment last? Thanks in advance.

It is basically a variation of a cpap.
You will wear it for life unless you lose enough weight that you no longer have sleep apnea.

I can't see me wearing that thing for life. I'm just wondering how long I have to wear it before I can proceed with surgery.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
