Be prepared to stay overnight. You will have a private room with a comfortable bed and will go to bed at your regular bedtime. Don't be concerned about not being able to sleep, that is expected. You will wear some monitors taped to your head, they will not get in the way while you sleep. Nurses will check on your sleep via tv monitors, but they will not come into the room or disturb you. I accompanied an adult DD individual on his sleep study several years ago, some things may have changed but I think this is basically what you can expect.
Did you have a complete hysterectomy, with ovaries also removed? If so, are you on any hormone replacement therapy?

Well I finally made the appt with the sleep doctor today. I go on Feb 15th. Not exactly sure what to expect but it is a Sleep Center so I'm sure at some point they will want to do sleep study. I'm doubtful it will work since most nights I don't sleep more than 5 hours. Will the doctor take all that into consideration? I have been taking two sleep meds (Rozerem and Lunesta) for almost 5 years now. Without them I would get no sleep...I'm pretty sure at this point I more or less addicted to the pills which is one reason I want to do this. I would like to get off the meds if at all possible. My primary doctor and my ob-gyn can offer no explanation. My ob-gyn told me 6 years ago that 6 months after my hysterectomy my sleep issues would resolve. And here we are 6 years later still in the same place....Anyway just wondering about other people experiences and advice and details to provide doctor.
I have really had two horrible nights of sleep in a row - having all kinds of strange thoughts/dreams. Very restless sleep for sure........
