    My partner has had SA since she was a child. Now in her mid 30's it was growing worse. She was diagnosed with it back then and once again about 6 months ago. She found a wonderful surgeon and SA specialist that prompted her to go under the surgery. Though skeptical at first, she did. And she has very little SA remaining. She is off the mask, off all her med's, sleep thru the night and does not fall asleep at work, behind the wheel or in the middle of the conversation. if you would like more me at and I will give you what information I have.
    She is a different person in the last 5 months. She made the decision to have the surgery when she was driving home from work and fell instantly asleep behind the wheel and was involved in an accident. She lost her job due to this illness, falling asleep in the middle of HR meetings and she is a Director.
    I know what you are going through..
