WLS Journey: Sleep Study Results
My diagnosis is in: severe sleep apnea! The “RDI” (respiratory disturbance index) for severe is 30 and up, and I came in at a whopping 48.
Yes, that means while sleeping I stop breathing for 10 seconds or more on average 48 times an hour!
I’m actually still (overly) angry about this. I hated the CPAP mask during the sleep study. Hated it. And I just feel like my body hates me even more than I hate it sometimes.
Lots of “FML” thoughts and feelings going on. I’ll get over it eventually, but I’m so so mad and disappointed.
This won’t even really help me get insurance to cover weight loss surgery because WLS is listed as an exclusion and doesn’t even have qualifications. FML FML FML
