I went to the dr awhile back as my snoring was keeping everyone awake, had a sleep study done and found out that I have severe sleep apnea, waiting to hear back from the place I will go to to get a machine, just wondering what your experience has been going on a cpap machine? I wake up fine but after a few hours I get tired the rest of the day, little nervous about the face mask, is it hard to get used to sleeping with it? What kind of maintenance need to be done with it? What about surgery, any surgery that can be done instead of a machine? Any tips would be appreciated.
