C-PAP Machine for Apnea following Sleeve Surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Anyone using a C-Pap following your sleeve surgery? I assume it is safe and my doctor said okay to resume use I am 6 days Post-Op. I have read a lot of conflicting intel on the web about using after surgery. My doctor specifically said that long ago the medical community felt it may be unsafe and cause leaks but he says he never recommends discontinuing until you can do so naturally.

My doctors diet post-op for the first 5 weeks is a bit extreme compared to others on liquid diet only. I figured maybe everyone's surgeons have a different take on the C-PAP as well. Would love to hear from you on the matter if you would not mind sharing.

Thanks

I never took a break from my APAP. They even asked me to bring it with me in the hospital, and I used it almost continuously, dosing off in my bed most of the time.

I took mine to the hospital also. And I use it faithfully every night. You have been reading some funky stuff.
