Sleep apnea almost cured



Recommended Posts

I'm totally off my blood pressure medicine and my average daily BP is 117/75. I went to the sleep doctor this week and I am almost cured of sleep apnea. We monitored my oxygen level overnight and while still technically I exhibit minor sleep apnea, it is a considerable improvement over what it was last year. The doctor has no doubt that after another 15-20 I should be back at normal levels. That certainly adds to the motivation.

Very cool that you are one of the lucky few that are able to leave CPAP behind, Bill. Sounds like you're doing great. Keep up the good work.

That's great, I want to be able to leave my C-pap behind also.

Keep up the good work:smile2:

I still use my cpap, but if I dont use it, I don't feel the tiredness that I did feel prior togetting my cpap. I have lost 65 lbs.The thing is. My DH snores badly (he actually needs the cpap now), so whenI put on my mask, I am aslep within a cople minutes. So I continue to use because of his snoring. Ther are some nights I dont use. I don't pack and take with me overnight anymore. I work at exerciseing min 1.5 hr /day so I am tired whenI go to bed. :crying:

If we didn't live so far apart, we could smash them together. Actually, you can't sell them because they are a prescription, maybe their is a charity you can donate them to?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
