wheezing, can't breathe in my sleep, please help!

I have been wheezing for months and can't breathe in my sleep with sleep apnea.  I've been trying for years and saw several ENTs to get surgery but couldn't.  Did my doctors really screw up and not give me standard tonsil/adenoid/septum/UPPP surgery?  
I'm on this resmed asv ventilator with oxygen and I still have lost my brain function and all my energy somehow.

Are you seeing or have you seen a Pulmonologist?

yeah I've seen many but my asthma got worse even on inhalers and prednisone and I wheeze when I exhale- the breath stops when I exhale.  and I have terrible sleep apnea, can never sleep on this machine

but isn't tonsil surgery standard in cases like mine?
I started on zyflo since I'm still wheezing for months now.  I took some amycin and had a bad throat infection and the wheezing hasn't stopped since November

yeah I asked my pulmonologist for amycin and took it for 6 weeks and a few months later I came down with wheezing when I exhale, my breath just stops when I try to exhale
the ENT scoped me and said there is no obstruction though my base of tongue is large
