I had UPPP surgery 3 years ago and it sure saved my life! First off the surgery itself was rough, up to ten days of discomfort, afterward, I was terrific. No big deal. Lost weight, slept again, didn't snore anymore, and felt like a new woman. I was 31 when I had the surgery and things have been find. I also have fibromayalgia and so my sleep is still somewhat disturbed during periods of stress etc, however, nothing like it was AND I can be a mom again!!! Lots more energy, you go for it girl!
