Sleep apnea and hernia surgery.

I have sleep apnea. Is outpatient hernia surgery safe?

That is a complex question. An answer to it will take a thorough evaluation by doctor Petersen. If you have a doctor, especially a lung doctor their input will be very valuable. If you use a CPAP or BIPAP machine to help you breath at night and you are having surgery please bring your machine with you.
