I feel I must write this , after only having total thyroid gland removal on Monday my sleep has improved unbelievably. I am due to have a sleep study next month for Apnea but the way things are going I don't think I have it anymore since I had the operation. I am 100% sure these 2 are linked. For the past 4 years my husband has suffered my snoring and so have I. The multinodular thyroid was pressing against my windpipe and especially sleeping on my back was impossible. Just before I fell asleep I woke myself up with the gasping for air and grunting and even last night when I had my 1st sleep at home after the hospital my husband said my breathing was nice , steady and smooth ..not a ONE snore. I will go to this sleep study because when I asked the ENT specialist could these two be linked he said NO ...I am not so sure about that!
Let me know your situations with sleeping problems and snoring.
