Septoplasty is just surgery to correct a deviated septem.
I found out I had a deviated septem, which makes complete sense.... A few years ago I remember complaining to my mom that it felt like I "had something stuck up my nose." Apparently that is when it started to become an issue. I don't know if it just curves or it's S-shaped... but I often have trouble breathing out of one nostril... and it changes... Perhaps I have an S-shaped septem and each side just alternates getting clogged up.
Anyway... I read that insurance will often pay for this corrective surgery... and I'd like to do it to preserve my sinuses and to have "increased airway clearance" since I'm an athlete
How long was your healing time? How badly did it hurt? How did it change the appearance of your nose? Did they put plastic in your septem or something? Had any problems afterward related to surgery?
