I’m going in for jaw surgery tomorrow where they plan to move my upper and lower jaw forward about a centimeter which they say will immediately cure my sleep apnea. My apnea is very severe and even after weight loss and a UPPP I still have 66 interruptions an hour without a cpap.

Although I’ve used a cpap for many years I’ve never been truly comfortable with it and the idea that I’ll be able to go camping or travel without having to lug that thing around is pretty exciting.

The health insurance is going to cover the cost of the procedure so I encourage anyone who would benefit from this type of surgery to look into it.

I’ll post a follow up in a week or two with the results for anyone who might be interested.

Have a good nights sleep everyone!
