Deviated nasal septum with adhesion inferior turbinate at right side.Eustachiantube dyesfunction, is turbinate reduction only useful or with septoplas?
Turbinate Reduction: Hello. The answer to your question depends on your intranasal anatomy. If your septum is surgically corrected, then your turbinates may need attention because the altered septal anatomy may create a new problem with enlarged turbinates. I address both at the time of surgery. Review these questions with your ENT surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

Ent found deviated septum, nasal obstruction, damage from gerd. Needs to do endoscopic septoplasty. Scared. Risks? Any life threatening risks?
Not big risk : Septoplasty is correction of the deviated or crooked septum.

Can anti-histamine + nasal irrigation + Cromolyn Sodium spray help reduce chronic nasal turbinate, nasopharynx inflammation & mucus membrane swelling?
Have a deviated nasal septum, don't want surgery.Been causing post nasal drip & bad breath for years, taking nasal spray & antihistamine. Not helping.
Reconsider : A deviated nasal septum can cause a lot of problems. My patients who have the surgery almost all wish they had it done sooner. Get in to see an ENT (maybe get a second opinion). He/she can give you more information pertinent to your case. Bad breathe and nasal drip can be a sign of sinusitis and if so, often needs antibiotics. So, a visit to a good ENT will be worthwhile. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
