Swelling After Septoplasty - Four Months Post-op?
When the splints came out, I had about an hour of the best breathing I have enjoyed since I was a child. Shortly after, the nasal passages closed considerably and were worse than prior to the operation. Since then, I have enjoyed a slow recovery but have reached a plateau. I have some decent days and others that are similar to pre-op. My nasal passages FEEL swollen and sensitive. (worse during exercise). My surgeon has said the nasal passages look fine. Nasonex (steroid) spray does not help much
