Oh no! My surgery just last week but I was hoping that once I dropped some weight I would be able to come off of my cpap. I am still hoping. 😄

Bummer, proudgrammy. I just got word that I need CPAP. Surgery isn't for a few more months, I am also really hoping its not a permanent thing. Oh well, at least I'll get a good night's sleep!

I had my sleeve surgery a year ago and in May had a new sleep study. I was told at this point for me it is genetic and I will be on the CPAP. I am down 84 pounds. My Dr said most do come off it after they loose a lot of weight.

Not yet. I'm hoping to get off mine. I really don't like it. My surgery date is October 25th. Finding out that I needed a CPAP machine is one of my major motivations to get the surgery.

Same with me. I just found out I need C pap, have surgery in January and am hoping to get off the c pap once I lose the weight.

I have mild sleep apnea and sleep study figures I can get off it once I lose a bit. I don't honestly care, I'm taking myself off it within 2 weeks after my surgery. I HATE IT.

Had surgery 10/03/17, still using CPAP, tried not using it a few nights after surgery, but woke up with Headache, I'll use it till my primary tells me I won't need it, hopefully when I lose most of my weight. A friend of mine after full recovery overcame sleep apnea, asthma, diabetes, and HBP, so I have hope.
