Commander Singh was once an athlete and used to actively compete with Milkha Singh and was crowned Mr. Cochin. He is suffering from a condition called tracheal stenosis where his main airway got extremely narrow. Additionally, his airway would collapse and get blocked whenever he lies down. Cdr. Singh has to resort to a positive airway pressure wherein a machine increases the air pressure in the air passage during sleep thus preventing its collapse. Besides this, he has to sleep on his side as he cannot lie down on his back for more than a few minutes without getting breathless.

This time is necessary to allow for the swelling to reduce and also to allow the socket to heal.
