I always knew I had a deviated septum (runs in my family) - in addition to or as a result of a crooked nose (swooping to the left)- but it never presented any physical problems until my late 40's. In 2006 I took up treadmill running, doing about 3 miles a day, and even though I was healthy... READ MORE

Trouble breathing and smelling. Nose was damaged in several places. READ MORE

Terrible quality septo incited the other un-needed work/s. How can this be remedied? My life is over. He left me w/ a very crooked bite (from the terribly positioned/shaved septum, valve collapse, and numerous other issues that he of course would not address, and went on these fool's... READ MORE

I had a septo/rhinoplasty performed in August. As a result of the surgery I now have a perforated septum. How long should I wait to have this fixed? It makes very irritating whistling noises at night and keeps me awake, so I am opting for the surgical fix. The hole isn't big enough to be... READ MORE

I had the operation 6 months ago to fix a deviated septum. Prior to this, I was hooked on Afrin for the longest time as I couldn't breathe, but had to get off it prior to the op as a requirement. The night before the op I couldn't breathe at all due to the deviated septum. The op itself... READ MORE

My doctor said he performs hundreds a year, and it was no big deal. I beg to differ, I've had 2 natural child births, and they seem like nothing compared to the pain experienced with my septoplasty. When I first woke up from surgery I felt little to no pain at all because it was numbed. I... READ MORE

It's been one year and 5 months (1/09) since my septoplasty and turbinate reductions. Initially I thought everything was going well; I followed my ENT's advice to begin immunotherapy w/ my Allergist for my allergies again (which I've been faithful), and to use saline spray, etc... READ MORE

The only con from the surgury was the excessive pain imediatly afterwards. But the pros greatly outweigh the con.Originally the doctor told me that I might possibly still have a great deal of pain after I healed, but four weeks later I was able to wear my glasses. I am also now able to sneeze... READ MORE

I had septoplasty and tubinate reduction done last week.i had this procedure without splints.results are preety nice, my nose is looking preety straight than before, sweeling was gone just after two days and i am breathing comfortably not doctor told me that it will take 3 weeks for full...

When i was little my nose was straight, as i got older it started to look crooked in pictures and people kept bugging and saying things about it. when my family doctor noticed she recommended me to a doctor that fixed my deviated sptum, only after i still couldnt breath. so he recommended me to...

Hi. First of all, I'm from Belgium, so I hope I don't write too many mistakes. I had septo-rhinoplasty 2 weeks ago (the cast came off 3 days ago). The reason I went to an ENT was because of asymmetrical nostrils. I didn't have a breathing problem however. It was mainly esthetical.After... READ MORE

I first had septo-rhinoplasty in April 2009 where the doctor rebuilt my septum with my rib cartilage. She also shaved down the bump on the bridge of my nose. 4 months later and I still had the bump on my nose and it felt like bone. The doctor shaved the bump again in her office, she just went...

However, its been five months and i am still having severe problems.1) after the surgery i smell this foul smell in my nose and 2) i went to another... READ MORE

So far has been a good experience. Just have a couple questions. Happy I had minimum pain and sweeling. Had to hardly use my tylenol number 3.I'm only 3 weeks post op but I had a question regarding scar tissue in my nose. Though I can actually breath alot better then i could before the surgery I...

Pros- fixed deviated septum, able to breathe better- made my nose look straight with hump removalCons- Had severe nose bleeding at home about 2 to 3 weeks into recovery and went to the ER- bad experience- swelling has not gone done entirely on the tip (5 months in)- paranoid touching or...

Closed septoplasty to fix deviated septum and to do some minor reshaping of tip because I was not breathing through my nose well and it was slightly crooked due to the deviated septum.The surgery was covered 100% by insurance. I had septoplasty and minor tip shaping 2 weeks ago. However,... READ MORE

I am currently 2 weeks exactly since my operation. I had a septoplasty as the cartelidge on my tip before operation was pushing to one side so it needed correcting. It just naturally developed like that.After thwe operation, my suregeon told me that my cartelidge was very bendy. I felt my nose... READ MORE

I did this cause I was hit in the face two years ago with a gate. It got to the point I could not breathe and had no air flow through the one side. I play a lot of sports and was being limited to my activities, as well as when I would get sick it was a constant trouble.Pros _I hope to breathe... READ MORE
