DH was diagnosed with sleep apnea, and prescribed a CPAP machine. He used it faithfully for over a year, but was never comfortable with it.

In 2009 he had surgery: Adeno-tonsillectomy, SMR Turbinate, and Septoplasty. His snoring dropped from shake-the-building to mostly a one-door snore. That is, we still have separate BR's, but if his door is closed and I leave mine open, I can sleep without hearing his snoring. Once every few weeks he'll have a two-door snore (I have to close both doors in order to sleep).

Don't know if he still has sleep apnea. If so, there's nothing left to do about it, so he hasn't been re-tested. Frankly, I'm skeptical that he ever had it, because a major symptom is daytime fatigue, and he never had that.

He didn't snore when we were first married (35 yrs ago). He was 145 lb then; now he's 30 lb heavier, so I think that's a factor. However, he's quite fit: eats well but not excessively; goes to the gym daily; and has low cholesterol, resting heart rate, and blood pressure. The snoring doesn't bother him enough to make the dietary changes that would be required for weight loss, so at this point, it is what it is.

Sorry if this sounds discouraging. Bottom line, different solutions work to different degrees for different people, and the only way to really know what will work for you is through trial-and-error.
