Deviated septum surgery laser

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum surgery laser


Avatar n tn It has been recommended to me also that I have turbinate surgery as my middle ones are 3x their normal size and I have a deviated septum. I have terrible headaches and breathe through my nose. I have never had a surgery before so I am very wary of having something done especially on such sensitive tissue. Thank you so much for the information and comments.
Avatar dr m tn if they have a deviated septum and if allergy treatment doesn’t work, then we can offer a septoplasty. There is also surgery to reduce the turbinates, which are these wing-like structures on the side of the nose that swell when you have a cold or allergy and there’s one other condition called nasal valve collapse that is frequently undiagnosed. This is a condition where the sidewall nostrils of your nose tend to collapse due to just natural weakening or due to previous surgery.
382218 tn?1341185087 I'm considering having surgery to correct my deviated septum and am wondering whether this is might be a bad idea in light of having MS. I would think that the trauma might possibly induce a relapse? Has anyone here had this kind of procedure and if so, did it worsen your MS symptoms, temporarily or permanently? I could definitely live with the deviated septum, but it has gotten worse over the years and I often feel plugged up on one side.
Avatar f tn my sinus surgery i had my deviated septum fixed and lots of polyps dug out. so any advice given would be highly appreciated on my previous post. i get so worried.
Avatar m tn He performed surgery on my nose with a laser to clear the blockage caused by the deviated septum. After I healed from the surgery, I could breathe slightly better, but I still suffered from blockage caused by swollen turbinates. I went back to the doctor and he basically told me that he had done everything he could and that I shouldn't have used so much cocaine.
Avatar f tn After several different doctors, I was told that I had trigeminal neuralgia as well as a deviated septum. I eventually had laser surgery for the trigeminal neuralgia, but the a facial pain continues. The nerve pain has subsided, but I continue to have facial pain on my left side. The pain seems to get worse if I lean my head to that side. This occurred a few years ago, and after several months of taking seizure medication and lortab, I was not getting any better.
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 m tn Then I saw a ENT surgeon and after evaluation, it was said that I have no nasal polyps, no deviated septum, but what was present was some rhinitis and an overbite. He stated that this could be causing my tounge to occlude my airway as I slept enough to cause surgery. It was described to me as malocclusion. Is this really possibe and what are some treatments for it?
Avatar f tn Well too bad I couldn't have had everything fixed while I was anesthetised--Chiari, the deviated septum, the freaky feet, a little liposuction, some dermabrasion, corrective eye surgery, laser hair removal. What else? Maybe we should have a surgical wish list.
Avatar n tn 2 partial turbinectomy, 1 deviated septum surgery. I spend every 15 minutes of the day in the bathroom trying to blow my nose and nothing ever comes out. Every ENT I go to says they will not perform a full turbinectomy. I've tried allergy shots for years and they did not work. I just need a doctor to do a full turbinectomy. Does anyone have the name of one? I live in Illinois, but am willing to travel.
190132 tn?1215010758 I cough when I eat, drink or doing absolutely nothing I'll have a coughing fit as long as I am up right. Twisted / Deviated Septum was finally discovered last year after years of testing i.e 48 Hr Esophageal pH Testing (2x), CT Scan of the Neck, Sinuses, Chest, numerous Lung Study, Esophagus Biopsy, Upper Endoscopy, Rediological Examination of the Esopphagus, CT Paranasal Sinused Limited Coronel, and so on not to mention numerous medication and drug therepy.
Avatar f tn The sinus cleanse things will not work if you are so backed up, nothing will come out, just water. The surgery I had was done with a laser and they also fixed my deviated septum. I didn't have packing in my nose, but was very stuffed up for about two weeks after because of swelling. All in all, it was really not that bad, I came home the same day. I don't know if that's what they would do for you, but it sounds like you need surgery to me if the CAT scan shows you are blocked.
784382 tn?1376934640 You also may need to undergo surgery for deviated nasal septum. This can relieve recurrent attacks of sinusitis and secondary infection. You need to continue with Anti histaminic against prescription. Sometimes nasal sprays of corticosteroids are useful. Remember, symptoms can be controlled through medication, but you can't get rid of the allergy itself. Close the windows when you sleep. I suggest you to consult ENT specialist. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn It so happens that I have a left nostril deviated septum. When I blow my nose, most of the force is imparted in the left nostril. The L eye happens to be the one with the worst ERM. Thanks again for your replies.
Avatar m tn Thank you so much. This vibration technique makes perfect sense to me. I don't have a massager or a bass speaker, but I will borrow or get one and let you know. I am on antibiotics for one month, nasal spray - netie pot and least 4x a day and still no relief. I have a deviated septum and will have to get surgery if this keeps up much longer!
Avatar m tn I have gone to an allergist and had 13 months of allergy shots. Had surgery to correct a deviated septum, had sinuplasty and turbine surgery. Took several courses of meds for acid reflux and nothing has helped. I also tried all types of allergy meds and it still continues. ENT had me using a neti-pot for a year - no help. I do not know what to do next. My issue is not a huge amount of mucus just a little bit.
Avatar n tn Did your ENT recommend surgery for the severe deviated septum? I had sinus surgery in 2003 and only have had 2 sinus infections since. You may want to talk to your physician about septoplasty surgery and ask him if that would help. Also, before I had the surgery I used J's Nose Drops (available online) and that got rid of all of my sinus infections. There is also another product called "Bi Yan Pian" that works. It is also available online and very cheap.
Avatar n tn I've heard of a lot of people being like this this year. I don't have a deviated septum and Dr. said I didn't need surgery...but if it would help me I would try it! How do you get a deviated septum? And...why are you having problems now from it and didn't before? These are questions I'd ask. I'm also thinking my immune system was run down due to so much stress in my life recently which wouldn't fight this. I, too, was thinking I had a SERIOUS illness. Now I'm feeling better.
Avatar n tn Did you ever get your feeling back or have surgery? I Had surgery 10 days ago and I still have numbness R nose area, upper R lip and teeth. I have a lot of tingling with sharp pains and I guess that is good.
Avatar n tn MY acupuncturist feels there is a weakness on the right side of my neck structure that is radiating up through my jaw and right ear when she inserts the the acu needles on that side the pressure ceases but the next week if the temp drops i get the fullness back in my ear also if my wife does an ear candling session on me I can be pain free for a week at the beginning my GP put me on penicillin and vicodin in fact he gave me enought vicodin for three weeks that was a horror show cause I wan't
Avatar m tn I had a tooth extracted, thought that might be it.-NOT. Had sinus surgury for deviated septum , thought that would do it. -NOT. I was glad to find this sight to learn that I am not the only one. Good to know. I think I will copy this to take with me for the next visit. I am going to go back to the doctor,because I hardly can eat anything now that does not get partially stuck. I have a pill stuck there right now, and I get my allergy pill stuck there every morning before work.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from ETD for a year and and half but only was diagnosed last week. Have had surgery on nose, septoplasty, to straighten septum for I could breathe properpely. This did not help with the ETD, have had usual nasal sprays, nothing helps. I am trying a dairy free diet as years ago I went to a homeopath due to my asthma and be put me on a dairy free diet. It really helped my asthma and I felt really fit.
Avatar n tn I have had cold/flu symptoms for about 7 years now, I've take every antibiotic known to man, every anti-histamine made, I even had surgery on my sinus for deviated septum and I still can't get rid of this ****. I driving me crazy, I can't do much of anything without symptoms getting in the way. About a month ago I thought I had it licked and the symptoms started all over again.
Avatar f tn adrenals and all horomonal functions the vagus is the control for the autonomic nerve system and the centre of all functions that are automatic I haven't had a regular bowel for 37 years and the acid is damaging my esophagus it is very serious. I would like to know wo else had the surgery??
Avatar f tn In the meantime, it's all gurgling, etc. I have a deviated septum, and went into an ENT specialist to take a look at it. He said that I have too much extra skin in the back of my throat, which could lead me to snore etc., later in life. I'm throwing this out there to see if anyone might have the same situation and whether it might be causing an inability to burp. Just a thought.
