Deviated septum and polyps

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum and polyps


Avatar m tn I was diagnosed as having chronic sinusitus, nasal polyps and a deviated septum. I am tired all the time, get shaky, sore throat, ear pain, can often hear my heartbeat very loudly in my ear, feel really slow and dumb, confused, pressure behind the eye, vision changes, my eyes hurt all the time, dry, gritty feeling and almost feel like I'm staring. I feel like my voice changes (which nobody can tell).
Avatar n tn What's the recovery time for surgery to remove polyps and repair a deviated septum? How long will I be in misery, and how long before I can work. (I'm a computer tech)? How long before I'll be glad that I had it done instead of sorry?
Avatar m tn I was told to go back for a CT scan and yesterday I was shocked to be told that I have a deviated septum (S shape), either a nasal cyst or polyp, and one turbinate significantly larger than the other. The ENT specialist has recommended an "all in one" surgery to remove my polyp/cist, reduce my turbinate and straighten my septum. He figures the reason for my total lack of smell is due to my nose being so blocked that nothing can get to my smelling glands/receptors.
Avatar m tn I’m a 28 year old male with acute sinusitis and a deviated septum and my sinus cavities are packed with polyps. When I was younger I had an allergy test done, and I was allergic to a few things, 20 years later, same test I was so allergic to everything they put on me that they had to stop because I swelled up so much. I don’t understand how that could happen that I could be so allergic to so many things in a few years.
Avatar m tn I'm pretty certain i'm not allergic to anything. I also wanted to ask if I have a deviated septum or not, the septum of my nose feels curved to the left and my left nostril has trouble breathing in and out, not to mention the stuffy nose makes it even harder. My nose is not crooked though, just the inside feels curved. What can be done about this as well?
Avatar n tn Steam inhalation can help with the sinusitis and provide relief. Were you also evaluated for deviated nasal septum? And has histopathology of the polyps been done? Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Avatar m tn I am 14 and I am nervous that I might have to get surgery on my nose to fix my deviated septum. I am extremely worried because I sing and hope to make a carrer out of it. If i have the surgery will it affect my singing?!?!?!?!?!

Avatar m tn I was expecting polyps or just bad allergies, but it turned out my nose was clean and have a deviated septum instead. I was shocked, since to my knowledge you only get deviated septum if you break your nose or something, but I have never had any accidents to my face for as long as I can remember. so why would my septum be deviated all of a sudden?
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Polyps or nasal growths are usually restricted to the nasal cavity. If they are large enough to protrude outside causing distortion of the nasal profile, they are likely to cause nasal blockage. A Complete ENT examination can provide further insight to rule out polyps or cysts or tumors. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn The doctor kinda acted like a ***** and said the damage isn't done from someone hitting you, when in actuallity my bone is messed up from getting hit and my septum is deviated.
Avatar m tn I know for me, even though my septum hasn't completely straightened out, I no longer have the problems associated with deviated septum. A doctor cannot completely straighten your septum if the extent of deviation is severe because in reality, the nasal cartilage/bone needs to be chipped away to an extent exceeding which you risk nasal perforation which again needs corrective surgery.
Avatar m tn Pansinusitis My ENT claims this without a doubt means I have nasal polyps and need minor sinus surgery for the polyps as well as the deviated septum. How does he get nasal polyps from mucosal thickening? This ENT is over 70 years old and show signs of memory loss.
Avatar m tn Over the past 6-7 years, I've had FESS 4 times, including turbinate reduction and deviated septum correction the first time, and in-office microdebridement of polyps 4 times. Polyps always return. Nasal steriod sprays ineffective. Antifungal rinses ineffective. Daily saline nasal rinse ineffective. I prefer to avoid further surgeries since they treat the polyps instead of the underlying cause of the polyps. Only effective long term treatment has been prednisone.
Avatar n tn I'm so used to studying all about GERD and the hiatal hernia I had, now I don't know much about polyps. Any information would be appreciated. Does it look like surgery? What's that like? Is it painful? Will this affect my singing? Thanks.
232690 tn?1189759429 I had a CT scan done, I had a polyp and a deviated septum, but the dr said it was caused by allergies. She gave me a cortisone nasal spray to try and it worked. I can't believed I suffered so long and my GP didn't offer this advice?? I have to use it everyday and I've been fine since I tried it. I went for allergy testing too, I was very sensitive to any type of mould, so I need to be careful if I go somewhere that seems musty, or too humid. Good luck, I hope you get some relief soon.
Avatar f tn Sinus Headaches usually present with pain over nasal area, often increasing in severity throughout day. This is usually caused by an infection, nasal polyps, anatomical deformities, such as a deviated septum, that block the sinus ducts. It is best that you have this evaluated further for proper management. This can be treated with antibiotics, decongestants, and surgical drainage if indicated. Take care and best regards.
1526920 tn?1309216422 At first they thought it was one large polyp but during the operation they found out that it was hundreds of small ones filling the sinus cavity. The doctor also had to fix a deviated septum( nose was pushing to my right on inside). It went ok and only two times since have I had pain on airplanes from my sinuses, since they fixed it. So my question is this 1) can they come back? 2) I started taking bromocriptine for a pituitary tumor 8mo. ago and since then, my nose is changing.
Avatar n tn After the exam the doctor told me that I had a deviated septum and possibly a nasal polyp. The ENT Doctor prescribed Nasonex and also told me that surgery may be an option. I have found that Nasonex has worked well for me and I am able to breath through my nose. Sometimes I notice that I can breath through both sides. As a general rule if medicine helps is it wise to not consider surgery? How long can people use Nasonex?

Avatar n tn It could also be due to a deviated nasal septum. Sometimes polyps can cause these symptoms. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime practice good breathing exercises, humidify your room and do steam inhalations. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn it revealed several polyps through out my sinuses,pus in my left cheek sinus,and airpocket in another sinus,deviated septum and my turbinates are 4x larger then they should be .im on xyzyal which is like zyrtec,veramyst,singular and i take claritin every day...
Avatar n tn My Dr ordered a CT scan a year ago and said i had a deviated septum and some nasal polyps. I generally take Flonase. About a week ago the allergies and sinuses really got a hold of me and i had horrible sinus pressure, felt really spacey, had ear fullness and pain, felt a little off but no ear infection. I got put on a antibiotic. I then just started the Flonase back up. One day i felt short of breath off and on. I also took a Zyrtec.
Avatar m tn I am sure it hasn't been near as bad as some people's that I have seen but thank goodness to a great friend that led me to a solution to my delema that might help others out. I have had a turbinate reduction and deviated septum in my sinuses fixed over 5 years ago... then recently in the past 2 years I have been getting reoccurring sinus infections over and over to no avail. I was on every antibiotic and steroid they put out.
402205 tn?1230484605 I had a CT and it showed a lot of nasal congestion but very little sinus. It also showed a slightly deviated septum and nasal polyps on the middle turbinate. What do you suggest I do?
Avatar f tn This can be caused by acute infection, nasal polyps, and anatomical deformities, such as a deviated septum. You may need antibiotic treatment and decongestants. If it persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I've been to the doctor and tried various nasal sprays, an ENT specialist has looked up my nose for polyps and found none, and a recent sinus CT scan displaying only minor results (a deviated septum to the right, and a slight mucous thickening on the left side), which is leaving me desperate. Thanks for any help.
Avatar m tn You commented on my post and I wanted to say that someone in the family suggested to me it could be nasal polyps or a deviated septum in my case. I hope to find out soon before I get any worse as it really is hard to function with these horrible symptoms....
Avatar n tn The nasal septum is a plate of bone and cartilage along the center of the nose. A deviated nasal septum is shifted to one side. When your septum is deviated there is less space on the side that the septum leans towards. Generally this area is squeezed. This can block sinus drainage into the nose. Surgery returns the septum to its usual position in the center of the nose. This is generally helpful in clearing the blockage and decreasing sinus infections.
