Septoplasty: Do the surgery. It will help your breathing and the sleep apnea as you will breathe better, and if you have cpap, you will tolerate it much better. All of my patients use their cpap on the first post op day as I do not pack the nose after surgery unless you are bleeding. Good luck and feel better!
