Having My Sleep Studied





This post is up so late because it's going out live, right now. I forgot to type it up last night and for whatever reason (see laziness) I didn't write it when I wrote the last post. So enjoy the fresh and crisp texture of a brand new post. Anyway, it's time to round off Health Week, which will just continue next week as I tell you all about how the pre-op I'm going to today went.
I don't know about you guys but I loved Arthur as a kid
So I said there would be another appointment heading my way soon, for yet another trip to the hospital. It's nothing to do with surgery and my mouth at least. This time it's to do with my brain and my sleeping patterns. I've long suspected I may have sleep apnoea but have never actually done anything about it. I didn't like the idea of having a sleep study done. Which is what I'm going to have done soon. Again, it's another of those things where I don't know what they're actually going to do with me. Are they going to keep me over night and monitor me? Are they going to give me a CPAP device to take home and return? I guess I'll find out more when I get the letter. 
 
They have stock photos for EVERYTHING
Honestly it might be decided I can't have the surgery yet. The consultant said that the anaesthesiest may want to wait until they know for sure if I do have sleep apnoea because it can complicate matters. It makes you stop breathing while you're asleep and if that happens when I'm under anaesthetic I'm kinda fucked. 

As always I'll let y'all know what happens. At least I have a lot of things to blog about for once.

  3. I have had sleep apnoea for years and use a Cpap machine at night while I sleep I like it and I find that I can no longer sleep without it
