Hi wired George,
Thank you for taking the time for getting me to a place where I can start from to ask my husband these questions. I know his last visit he was met with the same answer he must lose weight as they are doing the best they can at his present weight. I will forward these questions to him before buying that nose contraption I've seen advertised on tv. Thank you!!!
Thank you for the information! I will forward this to him...don't know much about the information but these sound like excellent ones to start with!
My husband has a Bipap machine and is exhausted after 8-9 hours of sleep during his work week and on weekends can sleep up to 12 - 13 hours before feeling halfway rested. I saw an ad for a device that can be inserted into the nasal pathways but it was a bit pricey and my husband wished I would try to research other options before that because of the cost and he is breathing through his mouth and wears a mask that covers the nose and mouth. I have noticed that it is not slipping off his mouth and rising over his top lip so much, but he's getting frustrated because he was encouraged by the fact that everyone told him that this would definitely decrease his symptoms, but it seems to be doing just the opposite and is getting no benefit and his sleep is more restless than before. It is affecting work and his health. Thank goodness no accidents, so please help!!!
