Deviated Septum-Septo/Turbinectomy

Posted by rupert on February 06, 2003 at 10:21:27:

I had the Sept and Turbinectomy this morning at 9:15am, right now I'm sitting in front of my computer with a gauze over my nose to catch the discharge (blood and stuff). I took a Tylenol with Codeine, but don't think I really needed it. The worst part of the whole procedure was the headache I had shortly after in the recovery room. I have packing in my nose, which the doctor had told me I wouldn't need, but in my earlier post someone noted I might need it to control bleeding. My doctor had told me there would be very little pain, I knock wood as I write this but there hasn't been any. If anyone is thinking of having this done and wants me to keep a running update I will gladly do it. Just post a reply.
I had the septum fixed to improve my breathing, I lost 60lbs which helped greatly with the snoring, then gained 10 back, there was a difference. I hope by opening up my nose, and losing some more weight I'll beat the snoring.
