I now have just one more thing to add to my list of things wrong with me. Ever since my surgery last summer, I've been snoring every single night or if I dose off during the day. It is so bad it wakes me up and I start doing it instantly before I am even fully asleep yet. I don't know if it's a coincidence that it just started after surgery or maybe it has something to do with the weight that I've gained over the last year. I am approx 70lbs overweight now.
Has anyone else had this problem after surgery when you didn't have it before. The back of my throat feels like it's swelling at night and I think that's what's causing it.
Not only am I getting no sleep, I am disturbing my husband. I stay up late as it is cuz I have trouble sleeping and I want to give him a chance to sleep before I start snoring lol. He either nudges me or yells at me when I snore and it really makes me mad. 2 nights ago he was hitting me in the back in the area where the the surgery was done and I was really sore when I got up the next day. He's furious with me and I feel bad cuz I can't help it.
I have an appt with my primary doc on Wednesday so I'll mention it then. I'm sure he's going to send me to one of those sleep studies. Has any of you had it and if so what's it like?
I've been sleeping out on the couch since last summer and I really miss my bed. I've tried to sleep in my bed but he nudges me so much that it makes me sore so I just stay out here on the couch.
Thanks in advance for your help and/or support.
