The answer to most of the above is, it depends. If you apnea is caused by enlarged tonsils then yes it could help. The deviated septum surgery would not specifically address apnea, but could make breathing easier. As to the tennis balls, only a sleep study would really indicate if you have truly positional sleep apnea. If you do, then it could help, but the sleep study would also indicate if it would be enough or if additional measures were required.
Have you had a study done yet, or just starting to look for info?
