My dad had that done, so I can offer an informed opinion:

I expect a full recovery for the 2010 season.

Default Re: Kubiak won't be at the Combine

It would be interesting to know why this type of non-emergency surgery could not have been scheduled to allow him to be present for an activity as important as the Combine. Yes, it is at least a good thing that Rick Smith will be present. But, for as much importance as Kubiak has repeatedly placed on "building this team with the Draft," I at very least find it strange. I wonder how many other HC's are not present.

I am little worried that I might have sleep apnea.


I got a chuckle out of this comment at the bottom:

Classic Kubiak! Manages his life just like he manages the clock on game day, poorly. Maybe he'll schedule a dental appointment on draft day

What is sleep apnea. It sounds like a sleepy larve.

I thought it was because he couldn't stand the electric atmosphere of the combine. It's a big deal. Lots of decision-making to do. Tension.

Things happen in your nose/throat area, while you sleep, that close off the air passageway, causing you to STOP breathing for sometimes extended periods of time. Varies from person-to-person, and you can get various procedures done to help alleviate it.

If left to itself, it leads to heart disease problems because you are starving your heart of oxygen. Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

Just spit-ballin' without doing my proper research.

So we have one thread saying the combine is overrated and next to worthless and another complaining about Kubiak not attending it. Just an observation.

NFL.COM claims that more and more NFL staff, including GMs & HCs, aren't attending the Combine in person but rather viewing it from remote TVs sets
because they have superior coverage to viewing in person. Now obviously part of that is marketing crapp, but I'm sure Kubiak won't miss a whole lot by watching it from TV at his home while he rest up from his surgery. And besides if you don't watch it on NFL.COM you miss the always informative & enteraining commentary of Mike Mayock.
The personal meetings of the individual prospects can't be substituted however and that's obviously a downside of not being in Indy.

This is pretty much it. My roommate in college had it and he would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. Seemed like it sucked pretty bad.

I think sleep apnea contributed to Reggie White's death.

Reggie White died from this.

Surgery cures and breathing apparatus's help to cope. I have a machine called a cpap that blows clean oxygen in through the nose. I rarely use it, but it certainly helps. You wake up feeling a little more refreshed because you are getting the amount of oxygen your body needs.
