Did septoplasty 3 week ago. Lt side dns and rt side concha. In operation docs just repaired nasal septum. Now breathing problm from rt side. Pls help!

Inferior turbinate: Without visualizing your nose, it is impossible to identify the problem. A concha bullosa had to be determined with a cat scan so your surgeon may have seen that and reported it to you. The most common cause of nasal obstruction on the side opposite to the deviation is an enlarged or engorged inferior turbinate. Sometimes with a septoplasty, the inferior turbinate also has to be reduced in size. ...Read more

Hyposmia after septoplasty and middle turbinate reducation I had a combined septoplasty and middle turbinate (concha bullosa) resection on 29th Feb. Immediately after the operation (1 day) I couldn't smell anything. My sense of smell returned after about

Hyposmia after septoplasty and middle turbinate reducation I had a combined septoplasty and middle turbinate (concha bullosa) resection on 29th Feb. Immediately after the operation (1 day) I couldn't smell anything. My sense of smell returned after about

Most: Most changes in smell following intranasal surgery are self-limiting and related to swelling of the nasal mucosa which can impair odorant contact with the olfactory nerves. The middle turbinate attaches to the cribriform plate, through which the olfactory fibers pass. The "crista" may be a misdictation in the or report as the only one I'm aware of is the crista galli, which is an intracranial boney projection above the cribriform plate to which the falx cerebri attaches. It seems improbable this was fractured. As long as you are not experiencing clear fluid drainage from the nose, having unexplained headaches, fever, or neck stiffness, there is probably not much reason for concern here. A trial of topical nasal steroids (i.e., flonase) woulnd't be an unreasonable initial approach. ...Read more
