sleep apnoea

Question

A friend has been diagnosed with intermediate grade sleep apnoea, for which treatment options proposed are ORL surgery (remove tonsils and part of uvula) or CIPAP machine (a life-long use at night). Anyone with any real life experience of either ? Thanks

My relative has sleep apnea and has been using the CPAP machine. It helps him not to snore and sleep well. If your friend is comfortable sleeping with it, then why not? I am not aware of ORL though, sorry.

Were you looking for some other kind of answer?
