Re: SECOND-time tongue reduction for severe sleep apnea in adult DS

Don't know where you are located but Dr. Bahman Guyuran did both my daughter's tongue reduction surgeries. She was three and then thirteen. Her speech is very good; we didn't know anything about the sleep apnea then. She ended up having tonsils and adenoids removed and is now on a C-PAP machine and tolerates very well.

Re: SECOND-time tongue reduction for severe sleep apnea in adult DS

thanks for your help.I was hoping that the operation would negate the need for a CPAP. I see that your daughter is sleeping with one anyway!
May our kids be healthy and happy
