To think he should take the ENT appointment?

DH has broken his nose many times playing sport as a result he's developed a nasty snoring habit that is causing mild sleep apnoea leaving him exhausted.

The gp has offered to refer him to ENT for, what sounds like, a consultation with a view to having his nose fixed.

Dh doesn't see the need.

I want a peaceful nights sleep and a husband who isn't exhausted all the time.

Who is bu here?

Can you sleep separately? You can't go on not sleeping. His body his choice, your sleep your choice.

Your DH is being unreasonable if something is impacting on your sleep like that and he won't get it fixed when he has the opportunity.

But does he realise the impact it's having on you?

Is he aware of the complications sleep apnea can cause? Blood pressure, heartbeat irregularities, diabetes..

Thank you

fluffy he finds it amusing in a "all husbands snore" kind of way but I don't think he's really thought it through beyond that

scribble I don't think he does. He gets that hes exhausted due to it but doesn't see it as a big deal.

I think he's just petrified of surgery (understandable) but wish he'd just say So!

Hibu and I completely relate and sympathise.

DH has what I consider to be substantial hearing loss he's deaf as a door knob . we were at the ENT clinic for a separate, but ear related issue ( he had half of it bitten off). I mentioned him being "slightly hard of hearing", specialist audiologist who was sitting in on the consultation offers to give him a quick hearing test there and then, DH refuses!! I could have murdered him! I've still not forgiven him not that he can hear me whining!

He's exhausted all the time, how does that help his sport??

Snoring can mess up his sleep can mess up his breathing & sporting ability. If he still wants to be good at his sports, he should at least talk to them before declining any treatment.

it might be amusing for him now but it's not for you.
and it's a long time health risk for him.
my dh only snores when he has a cold.
