Had a septoplasty last Nov on the UK NHS and ever since my breathing has been worse. My nose feels constantly blocked and if I do any exercise my nose continually runs, which makes it harder to breathe.
When you look up my nose I can see a 'lump' which I saw after surgery and hoped it was swelling. It hasn't gone away and you can see how narrow my passage is. My surgeon says there's nothing he can do, just take a steroid spray.

Gave too much pain medication, nurse had to correct him. Didn't tell me how much time I needed off work until half an hour before my surgery. My boss was fuming! Follow up - shone a torch up my nose and said there was nothing he could do. Suggested a steroid spray to try and said he didn't want to see me again.
