What Im asking is if I have severe then why spend the money and time on part 2 and just go right to surgery to open or like I have seen on the doctors show move the obstruction?
I really do not want to hook myself up to a machine every night!
Can you give me some input..ie goods and bads of my therory of going right to sugery?
Surgery is ineffective with moderate to severe sleep apnea. That's the simple and straightforward answer.
There is a 70ish% success rate in the mild sleep apnea range. Much much lower success rate for the moderate to severe range. Success is defined as decreasing the AHI by 50%. So in your case, the best you could hope for if all the planets were aligned properly, you would only stop breathing 15 times per hour, or roughly 100 times per night. Not good.....
Admittedly, CPAP sucks. It is effective though. Nothing is worse that having a painful and expensive surgery only to find that it didn't work and you still wake up feeling like crap. Now your anatomy is permanently altered.
I say give it a try and see what happens. Look at the data and charts yourself. My own father was extremely skeptical. Now he can't go a night without CPAP...he loves it because of how it makes him feel during the day. Back to tennis, swimming, scuba diving and his overall quality of life has improved dramatically.
