Common Questions and Answers about How long does deviated septum surgery take


538090 tn?1213811712 My sister had sinus surgery and a deviated septum fixed for constant sinus infections but it did nothing for her. How did your surgery effect you if I could ask? Hope things improve with you.
Avatar m tn I'm sort of leaning towards going for surgery, because the CT scan also showed that I have a deviated nasal septum that has been giving me a lot of breathing problems for a lot of my life (it was misdiagnosed as hay fever), that I would like to have fixed with another surgery - and the ENT specialist said that I can have the 2 surgeries together, which will save me some time and trouble.
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 Cocaine does cause a deviated septum, but after 2 months use, it would be rare, very very rare. The skin coming out is not from your septum, just tissue the coke is eating away. This is normal for any coke user and in all honesty nothing to worry about. If you do not stop using the cocaine will continue to eat away at the skin and bone in your nose, but this may be the smallest problem you have to worry about with coke use.
Avatar n tn Can someone who’s used cocaine less than 10 times deviate or perforate their septum? Or does it take a LOT of money and cocaine to actually do that type of damage? Needless to say, I will never touch it again, as this has scared me completely straight! Any thoughts would be much appreciated. BTW, I’ve never had access to a “lot” of the stuff, so it wasn’t like I was blowing massive rails. At most it may have been like ~1 gram per 3 people – and I always did less than everyone else.
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 My friend never wants this happen and so is willing to give up for however long it takes for his nose to recover. Does anyone know how long this may take? Are there are treatments that will make the healing more rapid. Thank you in advance to anyone that can help!
351724 tn?1267540618 start to drain and it was a bit watery with blood. then afterward just blood . Anyways my question was is how long does this ETD last ? What happen was over a wk ago i went ot friends house and she was remodling her kitchen and knocking down walls,counters, bricking , ect .
Avatar f tn I had an open reduction with bone and tissue biopsies done for probable osteomyelitis as well as flushing irrigating and debriding all of the frontal sphenoid and maxillary sinuses. First question, does anyone know how long till the biopsies come back? I have to go to the **@@ who did the surgery on monday to have splints removed, but after how she treated myself and my husband, i do not want to deal with her anymore.
Avatar f tn Granted this is not the same, but it will show u how u handle pain and how long it takes u to recover. Hang in there and follow ur gut...
Avatar n tn Hi...I am having the same surgey for fungal infection and nasal polyps....kinda nervous....
216046 tn?1193947004 Does anyone know for sure if I will get any pain relief from morphine? How many mgs would i have to take of it since I'm on 100mgs of methadone? The ENT informed me this surgery has a painful recovery, but well worth it in the end. I'm scared of the pain and until this is over, detox from opiates is not my concern.
Avatar n tn The same doctor performed two sinus surgeries (1st, deviated septum, turbinate reduction and 2nd one to clear blocked maxillary sinuses). I still have at least 10 sinus infections a year with terrible headaches, fever and fatigue. I have some mild allergies and am getting weekly shots. I have been on all kinds of antibotics, nasal sprays, antihistamines and steriods, but I still keep getting infections whenever I get a cold.
Avatar f tn The least drastic first. If he has a deviated septum, deviated enough to consider surgery, that often allows for more successful CPAP therapy by allowing freer, more comfortable breathing thru the nose. Perhaps, if as you say, his internal throat opening is drastically small it might be due to enlarged tonsils and just a tonsillectomy would solve most or all of his problems. I'm not sure about the turbinates, I think if they are enlarged they are done along w/the tonsils.
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.
Avatar n tn Do you have allergies? Deviated septum? Polyps? If you figure out the problem and take care of that, you will highly decrease you need for future procedures.
Avatar n tn I have suffered with vertigo for over 15 years. First brought on by an ear infection. First ENT doctor did very little for me except prescribe prednisone, which did not help and my first attack lasted almost 6 months. Then about 10 months after taking the prednisone, I suddenly went blind in my left eye. Doctor said it was caused by the prednisone and I had to have both of the lenses in my eyes replaced with interocular implants.
Avatar n tn Although the breathing problem is a pain, it does not affect my athleticism. But it is very frustrating having to take deep breaths every minute or so, often having to appear as a yawn when in public (embarrassing). I am not suffering from any anxiety, I eat really healthy and my weight is good. I do not take any medications. The one thing that seems to have arisen simultaneously is a knot in the muscles in my back under my left scapula.
Avatar f tn I was unable to see below me and had difficulty with steps, curbs, or uneven ground. I also had to undergo a sinus surgery to correct a deviated septum which was done at the same time of my orbital implants. I am still feeling the effects of that surgery, almost 3 months later. I am still having a hard time breathing, my right side of my nose is numb, and I wear an eye patch on my glasses all day just so I could see what I am doing.
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 n tn Is 4 weeks the amt of time that the symptoms should be gone? How long does it take to cure an ulcer? My upper GI test didn't show an ulcer, but my dr seems to think there may be a small one there that didn't show on the test. My symptoms are pain at the very top of my stomach and it's worst when my stomach is empty. The pain has diminished down to discomfort, but it's still not totally gone yet. It's been 4 weeks. How long does it take to get back to normal?
Avatar m tn i have a dust allergy and i know thats what caused all my problems so my question is with all these problems could these things make my allergies even worse then normal like does it make me more sensitive causing sneezing and stuff like does the deviated septum and the enlarged turbinates just make things worse i know it sounds confusing and obvious what im asking but maybe someone wil lget what im saying
Avatar f tn - is my deviated septum caused the sinusitis? Or perhaps there is a chance of other problems in my head caused by the accident? - is aching eyes and bluish color under eyes because of sinus inflamation? - did the sinusitis trigger the GERD or the opposite? - could sinusitis saline or nasal irrigation help clearing the extra-mucus? - does my tongue become very sensitive/aching due to acid reflux?
Avatar m tn I saw my ENT doctor this morning and she showed the result of CT scan. Indeed I have Deviated Septum and she suggests me to be operated. This Deviated Septum explains excessive mucus in my throat. However, I am still wandering if it causes some bloody mucus in my throat in the morning. For that I worry about my lungs.
219241 tn?1413541365 I spent hours with him, he howled,he cried, told me I don't understand how society is a piece of crap. I howled, I cried, I told him I DO understand how society is piece of crap! I have spent so many years being unable to get my point across. I knew perfectly what he was saying, but he was too caught in his own hurts and sorrows to hear me. I knew he wasn't just metaphorically saying he wants to be dead....he really means it. My heart bled. The pain was intense.
Avatar dr m tn If your nose is stuffy for whatever reason—allergies, polyps, deviated septum, or anything else—that’s the first thing that I address, whether medically or surgically. This is because if you don’t breathe well through your nose, then everything else downstream is more prone to collapse. So once the nose is taken care of and if you still have sleep apnea, then you can try going back to the CPAP.
Avatar dr m tn Usually it's not one thing, but usually due to a combination of different reasons. For example, if you have a mildly deviated septum, suffering from mild allergies will swell up your nasal turbinates, narrowing you nasal passageways. This may not be enough to clog up your nose, but if you have flimsy nostrils or had rhinoplasty in the past that weakened the nostrils, then breathing in with a stuffy nose may trigger your nostrils to collapse.
Avatar f tn at first i thought it was just my sinuses b/c i had my sinuses checked in october 2010 and they found polyps and a deviated septum so they did surgery in nov 2010 but i still feel the same as i did prior to surgery. so im going to go to the doctor soon to rule out anything else but im learning it could also be migraine headaches too, just another level of them. like the aura before the migraine.
Avatar n tn Thank you for the information. How long does it typically take to trigger a migraine when you eat gluten or nuts? Is it typically a few hours or longer than that? Did an allergist make the diagnosis regarding food sensitivities / allergies? Thanks again.
Avatar dr m tn Normally you won't notice this, unless both your turbinates are somewhat congested. If you have a deviated septum, then you'll notice this more. Gravity also affects the size of your nasal turbinates. When you lay down, blood pools in the vessels, leading to slight engorgement. However, your involuntary nervous system detects this relative change and automatically constricts your blood vessels to improve breathing.
