I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and use a cpap machine. My ENT thinks fixing my deviated septum many help this condition. I am wondering if the removal of my tonsils and adnoids would help. I have a small throat, and my son had to have his removed as a child due to his snoring/apnea. Did anyone else have this done as an adult?
