My UPPP Recovery: Day 3

Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty - UPPP

I slept very well last night! I only woke up when it was time to take my medicine but I was able to fall right back to sleep. No apnea or difficulty breathing. It was a good night of sleep.

My hunger is coming back. I had some oatmeal for breakfast and it went down pretty easy. For lunch I had some miso soup and some jello. I’m drinking water and gatorade.

My nose is still getting stuffed up, but sinus rinses and some forced breathing is opening everything up. As long I can continue to breath through my nose, then this recovery will be easy.

I am scheduled to take the splints out tomorrow, and so things should be even easier.

I am enjoying spending time with my wife and my mom.

So far, I am extremely pleased with the results. I can definitely feel the difference in my throat, it does feel more open. I know it is still early, but I am going to say that this procedure was a success and definitely worth it.
