I had one years before my surgery, so wasn't required to again. My first study I did have severe sleep aponea but the results went from one specialists inbox to another and took three months to surface again. By then I'd lost about 20 kg, so was told the test needed to be redone. I lost another 10 kgs before having the second test, by which time I no longer was deemed to need any treatment. Regardless of your test results, weightloss generally resolves the issue at some point.

Some surgeons require sleep tests here in Australia while others don't. Even if someone tests with sleep aponea, the way surgeons deal with it here differs between surgeons. Some do nothing, while others insist on CPAP treatment for a period of time where they monitor comp,ince before surgery.
