Re: Is partial soft pallet and uvula removal worth it?

Thanks for the reply.

I had the T&A and full endoscopic surgery done. I understand about the sneezing part COMPLETELY.

My insurance said that the UPPP was not proven to be medically necessary and thus only covered the T&A and sinus roto rooter. After said surgery, my sleep apnea improved from severe to mild. I still use my CPAP at the same pressure and am satisfied. If I had been allowed to do the UPPP I am unsure if I would have went for it, but others took it our of my hands. I do wonder if the UPPP was allowed and done if my sleep apnea would be gone completely.

Thanks for your imput, hopefully others in the same situation will use it when waying their options.

Sincerely,
MG
