Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with morbid obesity can be treated with any bariatric surgery procedure, namely, lap band, min- lap band, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, or biliopancreatic diversion (BPD). The type of surgery is decided after considering your general health, and other anesthetic and personal considerations. However, yes, BPD has been shown in several studies as the best procedure in relieving OSA, while adjustable laparoscopic band had the least effect. Please discuss this in detail with your specialist.

my husband & I have just had sleeve surgery 2 weeks apart. and we have a 5 year old at home. We are both very pleased with the out come and it has been less than a month for me and almost a week post op for him. we have had no complications and both of us 1 day after surgery have had to stop our diabetic and high blood pressure medicine. I have sleep apnea and I have already had to lower the pressure on my cpap. They ate predicting I will be off of it within the next few weeks. I have a desk job and was back to work 4 days after surgery. It does take about a week to regain all your strength but 3 weeks after surgery I feel like a new person. And I've already lost 22 lbs. we both agree this is the best we made and wish we would have done it sooner.
