Deviated septum surgery medication

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum surgery medication


Avatar n tn My doctor ordered a ct scan on my sinuses. I have a deviated septum. I have had problems for years and have tried many things. Nasal sprays, decongestants on and on. I looked up the symptoms and I have all except the nose bleeds. Chronic sinus infections, sore throats, drainage down the back of my throat which makes me nauseated and on and on. I also feel tired most of the time. To me this is the worst feeling of all. Is this common with deviated aeptum symptoms? Can surgery help?
3072999 tn?1356418332 I remember that someone had posted that thu had surgery for a deviated septum. My DH is scheduled for this surgery in Monday, 10/1, and I am wondering what to expect as far as recovery. I've heard up to a week of not doing anything then I have heard within a day r two u r fine. My ex husband had this surgery done but also had more stuff done (his sinuses were punctured and drained because they were so filled) and I was thinking he was back to work (he was a truck driver) in like 3 days...
538090 tn?1213811712 I haven't experienced much relief yet, but it's only been 8 days so far. They only way to fix a deviated septum is surgery. Without the surgery it can cause a lot of sleep problems, sleep apnea, disturbed sleep patterns, dry mouth. Lots of complicated problems. I'm still swollen up at this point. I use the Nasal Rinse 6 times a day. am taking antibiotics, steroids, which are awful, and steroid nose drops, as well as Vicodin for pain.
Avatar m tn Having sinus problem most of my life, it’s the last few years that have been the worse. 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.
Avatar n tn In Aug 2008 I had a Deviated Septum Septoplasty out of no where in late September I felt really light headed, trouble breathing through my nose, and I felt like I was going to passing out. The event happen to me 3 times in 3 weeks. Each time I was hopitalize with pefect for vital signs. The light headed spells started getting longer by the day to the point where I felt lighted headed all day & often was concern that I was going to passout and find myself in the hospital again.
Avatar n tn He made me undergo a CT Scan and results showed that all my sinuses are normal except that I have enlarged turbinates and deviated septum that cause my chronic stuffy nose. He prescribed me another nasal spray and anti allergy pill that he said might work. Surgery too, he said might be a solution. I want to know if surgery is the best solution for me or if possible can surgery still wait until december of this year because I'm planning to do it on December when I return to Philippines.
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.
525745 tn?1212455709 I know for some things I can't take percocet but for others I can when I had surgery on my nose (rebroken and set plus the deviated septum) It didn't cause any issues but when used for my back it caused hallucinations. Might be too much meds for the problem your having.
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.
458072 tn?1291418786 I will be having sinus surgery next Thursday, 10-21-10. This is because I have had repeated sinus infections that have not cleared up after 2 rounds of the strongest antibiotic (orally) they could give me. The ENT will go in and clean out everything in there, sounds gross. Due to these sinus problems going along with the hypothyroidism, I am wondering if it will do any good, or if it will just come back. Anyways....
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 n tn I have a deviated septum and my nose bone is crooked so I'm getting a surgery to straight the septum, and my nose is being rebroken to straighten it. In my surgery packet they list a bunch of different substances to avoid 2 weeks prior to surgery to avoid excess bleeding. Among these are ginseng, advil, ext.
Avatar f tn I had a huge polyp in my nose for around 30 years i could look up my nose and see it like a jely bee,my septum was also deviated on the same side,,I had the surgery,now i I cant breath from that side but my nose always feels dry,,not to mention the most awfull feeling for the first two weeks after surgery,,,would i do it again,,no,,,
Avatar m tn I had asked the ENT about the gagging symptoms (he had not even asked about symptoms I was having and was about the end the appointment, and was already pretty lacking in bedside manner throughout the appointment, he spent more time looking at my deviated nasal septum when he looked in my nose which was not why I was there), and asked at what point do they do surgery.
Avatar m tn On May 6th I had 4 different procedures on my sinuses as I was suffering from Chronic Sinusitis. I had polyps removed, my deviated septum straightened, turbinates cut out... and I'm not sure of the last one. Anyway, the day after the surgery I went home from the hospital and hardly needed any pain relief. My nose of course was blocked because of the packing but other than that I felt really good, tired but good.
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 f tn I had surgery for a deviated septum and removal of turbinates about 20 years ago which significantly reduced the frequency of sinus infections and bronchitis. Unfortunately over the past several years, the frequency of these illnesses have increased. Initially, I was diagnosed with asthma triggered by upper respiratory infections and was put on one medicine after the next, many times just adding another medication to my list of inneffective treatments.
Avatar m tn With the deviated septum, if the medication isn't helping they would usually suggest surgery (septoplasty) ~ but I suppose that depends on how severe your symptoms are and how badly you feel... If surgery isn't an option, I wonder if there's an alternative treatment you could try? Have you tried posting over at the 'alternative therapies' forum? There's a bunch of really helpful people over there, and the response time is usually pretty rapid.
Avatar n tn First of all, keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose you because I am unable to examine you, this forum is for educational purposes. I do not suspect that surgery for your deviated septum will help your headaches. It is not impossible, as a deviated septum can lead to chronic sinusitis and if the surgery results in the decompression of your sinuses this may help. However, I think the osteoma that you have would be a more obvious choice as a potential cause of your headaces.
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 f tn Hello, I have a deviated septum. I am havin surgery on it next week. My doctor said it was normal to have drainage in my head. But it feels like a river runnin through and its burning. Its been like that for three months. It seems like its getting worst. I'm only 22. I am very nervous and just want it to stop. I don't think I can wait til next week what should I do??
Avatar m tn Five years ago I also hurt my nose playing basketball. Fearing the corrective surgery to fix my deviated nasal septum, I have taken the above mentioned decongestants for five years. My recent echocardiogram demonstrated severe aortic regurgitation, thickened intraventricular wall, dilated left ventricle, dilated aorta etc. I have not had high blood pressure over this time. Please advise.
Avatar n tn The other possibility is that you have a foreign body in nose or a deviated nasal septum. This makes a person prone to repeated infections and allergy like symptoms. Another possibility is laryngopharyngeal reflux. This throws the stomach content into the throat without heartburn. Depending on the cause treatment may include antibiotics, nasal irrigation, or minor surgery. Please consult an ENT specialist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted.
Avatar f tn Consulted with ENT and he told me that I've got sinus infection and the main cause was misalignment of nasal septum. Told to get a surgery but I didn't want the surgery to happen until I complete my graduation. I managed by daily inhaling steam and also by trying to eat or drink cold food. I was asked not to blow nose strongly which might tear the septum or cause problems to the nostrils and can bleed. I guess this might be the problem of your bloody mucous.
Avatar n tn One doctor says that the deviated septum is the cause for his headaches and that he needs surgery while another doctor disagreed and says that a nasal spray is sufficient. Unfortunately he tried all kind of sprays but it did not do anything for him. I am really worried that something worse is lurking around. If you could please give us an advice on what to do next. Thank you.
Avatar n tn The last one was an ENT, he did a Turbinate Reduction with deviated septum because I also have Apnea. He was going to do additional throat surgery but said my last sleep study didn't support the surgery and didn't think it would be worthwhile.
Avatar n tn I am a 39 y/o male with mild tmj and sleep apnea, In July I had deviated septum surgery and two weeks into recovery i developed Bronchoitis. Dr Prescribed z Pack first then switched over two levaquin. About 7 days into the medicine I developed a twitch/ spasm in my upper lip right in the center. I have been off the medicine for three weeks and it is still there. I have been to My family phy who did blood work normal except cholestrol 250.
Avatar dr m tn Deviated Nasal Septum One of the more common reasons for a stuffy nose is due to a deviated nasal septum. A “septum” is a term that describes a structure that acts as a wall or separator between two cavities. Your heart has one too. No one has a perfectly flat or straight septum. All septums, by definition, have slight irregularities or curvatures. A major reason for a crooked septum, unbeknownst to many people, even other doctors, is because your jaw never developed fully.
Avatar f tn It has gotten to the point where medication offers no relief. I, too, have a deviated septum but I refuse surgery because most people that I know who had it still get reoccuring sinus symptoms. Right now, my biggest complaint is feeling headache-y all o the time. My head feels so much pressure I literally cry because of it. I worried that it was something worse but I was told that its just sinus...thank God! I dont know what to tell you except that you'll be alright.
565430 tn?1272699420 But if I was on my right side and my right sinuses clogged up so I rolled to my left side, my right sinuses could barely drain to the left. I have a slightly deviated septum. I'm not a fan of surgery. I'm a wusp. A real pansy. I did have a period of some 18 months to 2 years where I had some really serious problems w/sinus infections. I was referred to an ENT who injected a corticosteroid in each nostril and WOW! IMMEDIATE RELIEF! I COULD BREATHE!
