8 days post septoplasty. Difficulty breathing?
Doctor Answers 1
Difficulty breathing and gasping
Even though you are likely to be ok, the fact that you are having so many issues is a concern and you should seek medical attention. Not to scare you, but anytime you are having difficulty breathing, gasping as you say, you have to worry about a PE. Please contact your surgeon ASAP.
