A 37-year-old male asked:

I have just had a septoplasty done six weeks ago, and i was wondering how much actual force would be needed to deviate my septum again? what physical signs would i experience if i deviated my septum again? can you deviate your septum by rubbing, scratchin

Stable: At 6 weeks, the result should be stable. it would requre a blow to the nose to displace. Rubbing and scratching should not be a problems at 6 weeks.
