I’m 22, I have severe OSA and also mild CSA. I’ve been using the CPAP for a few months now which has proved to work as my AHI is around 6. My feeling towards it however, put simply, is that I hate it.
Among the many issues of just using it, I never realised how much of a lifestyle change it would be. I have to constantly turn down many of the activities I enjoy and miss out on so many events with friends since I cannot get power for it and cannot carry around the machine with limited packing space.
Basically I am asking if anyone has had the inspire surgery through the NHS: what requirements did you have to meet to get it, how long did it take until you got the surgery and also can you control the inspire yourself?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
