I suffer from sleep apnea and loud snoring and the NHS

Customer Question

I suffer from sleep apnea and loud snoring and the NHS hospital gave me a CPAP machine following an at home sleep study. They did not do any checks on me apart from weight and blowing in a tube. I'm healthy and run regularly so its no due to over weight. I suffer from a blocked nose and found that the CPAP machine blew me up like a telly tubby and was painful through the day so I had to stop using it. Later after insisting with my GP that I finally get to see a specialist rather than being palmed off with nose sprays the ENT specialist found that I have a deviated septum and I am now being referred for an operation to correct the septum. Will this cure my apnea and stop me snoring because I done know what else I can do and when you read about sleep apnea causing health issues its something that I'd like to cure some way or other. Hope to get some further advice from a specialist.
