Breathing problems after septoplasty
Sorry to hear you are still experiencing breathing problems. Often times this may be due to allergies, which requires medical therapy (such as nasal steroid sprays) rather than surgery. Some patients require a rhinoplasty to address nasal obstruction. In order to determine why you continue to experience nasal obstruction after the septoplasty, a proper physical exam is necessary.
