Doctor insights on:
Turbinate surgery: It depends on what technique is used. There are minimally invasive procedures such as Coblation turbinate reduction ,endoscopic microdebrider turbinate reduction or an actual surgical excision of a portion of the turbinate. The first two aren't very painful, while the last one is a little more painful. Overall, relatively minor pain . That should not stop you to help you breathe better! ...Read more

How bad is the recovery from turbinectomy? Is it as painful as septoplasty (Involves bleeding,pain etc.)?
Turbinectomy good/better than cpap for mild sleep apnea? Confirmed enlarged upper & lower turb's. Don't want cpap.
Last month i did septoplasty/turbinectomy but now when i blow out from my nose i see frequently high quantity of mucus with green bright green color?
I had a turbinectomy about a week and 1/2 ago. In one of the nasal passages there is what looks like white mucus but when I blow nothing comes out. Could this be an infection? Or is this normal?
Septoplasty & turbinectomy 4mths ago. Cleared nose but now getting thick, clear mucus. Allergy tests negative-Any allergies that mightn't show on test?
Yes.: There are all sorts of things to be allergic to and not all of them are included in standard allergy testing. If you continue to have allergic symptoms, consult your ENT doctor about treatments. You may do fine with antihistamines, nasal sprays, etc but best to check with your surgeon first. ...Read more
