Thank you for your recent inquiry. Most patients have improved breathing within a few weeks of septoplasty and turbinectomy surgery however it does take time to fully heal and swelling in the tissues may cause some blockage. Speak to your surgeon and have a direct examination so he/she may tell you where you are in the recovery phase and discuss options for healing. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
