I just had Inspire implant 2 months ago, my activation was the end of December. So far so good, i am still trying to get use to the device, but i am sleeping better, not snoring, the arrow is pointing up for me.
HI Newbie here, I have been diagnosed with OSA over 2 years now. Tied CPAP and had a Septoplasty and Terbinate surgery. I have AHI of 41. Severe OSA
I just got approved for Inspire, has anybody had this surgery?
New to this site, I am 48 years old, I have been diagnosed with OSA 2 years ago. My AHI is 41 times an hour. I am tired all the time, lack of concentration, high blood pressure, weigh gain and overall quality of life has suffered. I have tried CPAP to no avail and have had Septoplasty and Turbinate surgery with little to no results.
I went to a new ENT last October and he thought I was an excellent candidate for Inspire. 1 month later he performed an Endoscopy procedure and confirmed that I was a good candidate.
After 2 or 3 denials from my insurance, NY State and outside firms, I was finally approved for Inspire.
If anyone has any thoughts, comments and experiences, please share.
Thanks in advance....
