New Year, New Nose

New Year, New Nose
On Monday I will have the surgery, I have been on the waiting list for over a year to get some surgery done to my nose, I suffer from sleep apnea and if you don't know what that means is I basically stop breathing while sleeping. I had always had it and don't remember the last time I went to bed and felt like I actually slept for more than 5 hours straight. I did the sleep apnea test in 2012 but my doctor refused to send me as a public patient.

Someone I met since then is a Doctor so he organized me to go see the right people and after numerous tests I am finally going under the knife. So what I am getting done is a Septoplasty to straighten out my deviated septum (the bit in my nose is not straight). Then I will get a Bilateral Turbinoplasty which is where they remove some of the bones in between your nose and throat  to make it easier to breath. Lastly I will get a UPPP ( basically remove skin in the throat). Hopefully I will sleep better than drink less coffee.. We will have to wait and see. But I will get a week off work so I am happy about that.
Do you know anyone that has had this done?
