I had my septoplasty surgery almost 2 months ago, and so far I still haven't feel good about the result. Although I sleep better but the air flow is still not smooth going into my sinus. I can always feel there's swelling or burning on the side that was worked on. I do heard a lot of people saying the procedure takes max. 6 months to see effect. Meanwhile my doctor said the airflow looked perfect and nothing else can be done. Does it really have to wait that long to see effect? I m so lost...Need help please!
How Long Does It Take to Feel Results from Septoplasty?

When can you expect the improvement after Septoplasty?
If the septoplasty has failed, you and your doctor will have realize this within a few weeks. Not so for success. The nasal breathing can continue to improve for several months. However there should be a notiable difference within several weeks.
