After a 5 month wait, yesterday I finally got my appointment in one of the best places in the US in that field (and many others). My last update was in november, and it just took that long for me to get my appointment (after having to cancel the one I had in January since it fell in the middle of my diving trip in Australia).
Long story short, it was fruitful: I brought my sleep study, saw a couple of specialists in 30mn, and they basically told me the following things:
Now, I have to see some surgeons for what my surgical options are, and in the meantime, I should totally stop sleeping on my back. I did that last night, and it already seems to have helped.
I'm a bit frustrated that my previous doctor wasn't able to tell me that from the results I already had, and that it took 5 months to get proper suggestions out of existing results, but if I had gone to stanford to start with, with the backlog they have it would probably have taken just as long anyway, so in the end it comes out to being more or less the same.
Anyway, it's good to have some answers, and I'll know more soon.
