On Monday evening around 7-8pm, I had a septoplasty performed on my nose due my deviated septum.
The consultant described my setum as S shaped - 70% blocked in my left nostril and 30% blocked in my right nostril.
The operation was a success for what I was told and due to the limited bleeding, I was given no packing.
To be honest in the last 3 days, there has been no real pain from my nose apart from a feeling of pressure.
The main areas of discomfort are my teeth - Upeer front and molars.
The consultant has advised this is normal...
The main concern I have is that since the operation, I have been able to breath from my right nostril a few times but my left has remain blocked apart from one occsasion, where my right nostril became blocked in stead.
Is this normal?
My left nostril still has some scabs within it but my right seems like it is clear...
My worry is that when sleeping I may have put pressure on my nose and therefore cause the septum to become deviated again
Is there any way of knowing if all is ok?
