I had one back in 99 and ended up having UPPP surgery which is an abbreviation for something that cannot be pronounced by man. They carved out my uvula, tonsils, back of my throat and inside my nasal passages. I would think twice if I had to do it again.
Not sure if the apnea is completely gone but it is better.
