Sleep apnea-Doctors recommending surgery

So I've recently had an in-house sleep study and the doctors discovered that I have sleep apnea. My symptoms range from snoring, snoring before I'm even asleep and transitioning form wakefulness to sleep, sometimes I'll gasp for breath as I'm dozing off, daily headaches, brain fog, irritable, mood swings, and mild depression which is likely all caused from oxygen and sleep deprivation.

My ENT suggests a setpoplasty, turbinectomy, and tonsil removal. He says there is about a 50-70% success rate with this alone and if all goes well I shouldn't need a CPAP in the future.

I'm wanting to know what the experience was like for people who's had this done? What were you symptoms before surgery and did it help alleviate them?
