  • Snoring

    OK, I know, strange issue.....

    My husband was NOT a snorer, pre-chemo. During chemo he started snoring some. I thought maybe it was due to him sleeping so deeply from being worn out.

    But now one month post chemo it seems to be getting worse every day. He didn't gain any weight on chemo, he isn't sleeping on his back....

    I can't get him to go to the Dr's for a jaw problem, I know he won't go over snoring....

    Anyone else deal with snoring post chemo? Any suggestions other then breath right strips or ear plugs for me?

    Is he laying down any differently? The closer his jaw is to his chest, the more restricted his airway is.... meaning if he made sure he slept with his jaw pointed up more so, he might not snore as much.

    Thats all I got....
