Sleep Apnea

I have been newly diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. I have done one sleep study and i am awaiting the second one. I have asthma and horrible allergies. Constant sinus infections, sinusitis, tonsillitis. Everytime i see a doctor they say how enlarged my tonsils are, but they refuse to take them out. I am extremely frustrated. And to add fuel to the fire i have a deviated septum. Does anyone have any ideas on what i can say to convince my doctors to approve surgery??

Hi Chocolatecity,

Are you going to be trying a cpap machine?

While you're waiting for responses here, I encourage you to also post about your tonsils on our Ear, Nose and Throat community .
