Sleep Apnea

Periodcially, during the night, my wife will wake up, and sometimes I stop breathing for about ten, fifteen seconds, then she'll nudge me, I change positions and begin breathing (rather, in my case, snoring . . . following my surgery in February, I stopped snoring, though recently it's started up again . . . from what I've heard I can shake the paint off the walls).  She mentioned this to the doctor last Thursday, so he's enrolling me in a sleep study.  I've been comparing notes with another brain tumor victim and she said the same thing happened to her.  Anyone else out there having sleep issues?

Yes. I have never regained my energy since my surgery and treatments (Surgery 2 years ago, radiation 1.5 years, chemo ended 8 months ago. My doctor enrolled me in a sleep study to see if this was the problem. I did one study, then another with the CPAP machine. They found I have mild apnea so I've been using the machine for a few months now. I must admit, I haven't been that consistent with it. So far I can't tell any difference in my energy level.

Grace and Peace,
