Re: [IP] carole/apnea/REM



My husband had that surgery  removal of the ulvea 10 years ago and it was
the biggest and most serious WASTE of money.  It did not work and  now
anything acid that he swallows, splashes back into his throat. IT is not a
cure-all.
The machine is a lifesaver and I recommend it to any one.  My husband had
his tonsils and adenoids out as a child.  SLEEP APNEA WILL cause
cardiac abnormalities!!
