Has anyone here had an Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or know of someone who has? My Doctor has suggested this surgery because I can't tolerate the cpap,but everything I'm reading about it scares me to death. My apnea is due to a large uvula and soft palette. During the sleep study the cpap setting worked well for me at 5. I was only able to tolerate it then because I stayed up late the night before so I could sleep there.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
