7 Weeks After Septoplasty/Turbinate Reduction and Can't Breathe While Standing? (photo)
At week 3 post-op, my nose began to get very dry during the day, and increasingly difficult to breathe through. The walls of my nasal cavity suck in when I try to breathe in, yet this doesn't happen when I am lying down. The only way I can breathe is with a breathe right strip. My ENT has said that she gave me "too much air" and that a procedure to "infracture" my turbinates might be the solution. Does this sound more like an internal nasal valve collapse? Please let me know your thoughts.
