I hope that this fixes all the problems. It sounds like a lot of things will be fixed and I'm glad that you are having this done. I'm sure life will be more comfortable after the operation. Hang in there!

Yes they have.....I just have a terrible time with the anesthesia, it makes me vomit even though they give that anti nausea shot and I can't imagine doing that with my nose covered......ugh!

by meganne 16d ago

Vicki it's a really easy procedure and once you have it done and can breathe through your nose you'll be amazed at what you have been missing. I had mine done when I was 28 and have never looked back, I can actually breathe and eat at the same time. LOL!!!!
The worst part was the cleaning procedure after the surgery, but this may be different now as a lot has changed in 42 years.
You will be fine!
If you want to talk about it from a patients point, just FB message me, anytime.

HUGE CYBER hugs xxxxxx

Thanks so much, Meg........yes, I was reading through the after care instructions and there is alot of saline spray and saline rinses to be done lots of times a day, so that hasn't changed......Doc asked me yesterday if I am going to miss my barometer (have terrible headaches and congestion with barometric changes)......I said Heck No! As it gets closer am sure I will lean on you and thanks for the offer....
love to ya!

BIG BIG Prayers. Think of this as a great little nap. Try not to think of it as a surgery. When you wake up and heal you are going to feel so much better. Be sure to let us all know what day and time to pray the hardest. Much Love!

I know that you will breathe so much better soon Vicki. Our son-in-law had a deviated septum and had surgery and he's breathing brilliantly now. I'll be praying for you and your surgeons. God bless, love Chris

My hubby had a similar operation a number of years ago. He was more comfortable sleeping in a Lazy Boy chair than bed for the first week. Be sure to take you medication as directed and not wait! Let us know when it is!! Hugs!

basketkase by basketkase 17d ago

Yes, doc told me the recliner will be my best friend for up to a week...did the surgery help him?

dailylaundry by dailylaundry 16d ago

Oh, yes it did!!! No worries - it will help!
