I had a deviated septum which almost closed one nostril completely. I was referred so that the septum could be repaired. Now both nostrils are open and working wonderfully.
The first 3 days with packing were very tough, with mouth breathing, but not terribly painful.I had septoplasty 10 days ago. The surgeon did a great job, he said the cartilage had been fractured in several pieces. I have a incision in each nostril and this evening after irrigating with a neti pot, the scabs over the incisions came out easily. I see no infection or pus, but I can see the cartilage. Is this something I need to be concerned about or go and see my surgeon?
Referred by family doctor because of ongoing breathing difficulty.
