surgery for sleep apnea?

I’ve done two sleep studies for sleep apnea. I did terrible on both. I’m doing worse with the CPAP machine. I weigh 550+ pounds. My doctor wants me to go see another doctor about gastric by-pass surgery. I’m wondering if anything else should be looked at first. My tonsils and adenoids are out. Your opinion is appreciated.
