My xray report says no definite fracture is seen. Nasal septum is close to midline. What does this mean in English? I understand my nose is not broken

In a perfect world-: -the nasal septum is in the middle or midline. In your case there's a little deviation to 1side or the other. Could be from the injury or can be a deviation of normal & not to worry. If you hit or was hit on the nose, it can still be very bruised and colorful but needs no treatment unless there is significant change later in recovery or have respiratory effects. ...Read more

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

I should note that I do not use nasal packing after septoplasty...This was routinely done in years past and that nasal packing was quite painful. With these newer techniques, recovery is usually mild. ...Read more

Not necessarily: If you are assymptomatic it would be hard for me to recommend that you have surgery. If on the other hand you are having trouble breathing a septoplasty may help. It probably won't do much for your sinusitis. ...Read more
