Not exactly. I had to undergo surgery first. Then the use of CPAP and annual MWT tests with a passing result will allow me to get a special issuance medical. The FAA will not accept weight loss and CPAP as a therapy to combat the issue. They want to see something that produces better results, because they cannot tell if you are actually using the CPAP.
