Can septoplasty cure sleep apnea? I've been using a cpap machine for a couple of years. I hate it. My doctor wants me to have a septoplasty for my deviated septum, but she won't say whether it will cure my sleep apnea.

.

Improving : Improving chronic nasal obstruction can help with sleep apnea, though there's often more going on in the airway to cause blockage than the septum. No one can guarantee that septoplasty surgery will cure the sleep apnea. A careful examination should help with pinpointing what areas are leading to your sleep apnea. Regardless of the sleep apnea, septoplasty can help with chronic nasal obstruction which may be enough of an indication for you to have surgery if it bothers you enough. ...Read more

Its very embarrassing that i snore very loud.Also my throat get dried while sleeping but my sleep is ok.Plz help me on my snoring and dry throat. Thnx?

You have listed: Sleep apnea as one of your conditions. I assume that you have have seen a sleep medicine specialist & had a polysomnogram. Was a CPAP machine recommended? Do you use one? I am afraid that a sleep medicine specialist who has evaluated you would have probably already provided more information than can be done on-line. Now, if you haven't seen a sleep specialist - please do so. Take care. ...Read more
