    Do u mean rurbinate reduction? Or both turbinate reduction and septoplasty?

    I had turbinate refuction and i was good for like three months, but then they started to enlarge again.  They re back to being 75 percent enlarged again now one and a half years later.  

    So for me it didn t solve my problem.  I have non allergic chronic rhinitis.

      Not turbinate reduction Katharine. Balloon sinuplasty is a new procedure, it expands the walls of the Sinus cavitys using a balloon. Its painless, and people can go home on the same day.

      Hi Anna, yes the surgery is not a pleasant one and the allergy shots are a big commitment in terms of both money and time however I tried both out of my desperation though the results in both cases were limited. The following measures could probably offer some help:

      1. Do nasal wash regularly

      2. Drink plenty of warm water

      3. Quit diary and diary products completely-user alternatives sources of calcium

      4. Take some vitamin c+zinc+magnesium-I take 1000 mg of vitamin c daily-check with your doctor about the correct dose, my doctor asked me to take 1000 mg

      5. For smokers, quit smoking completely

      6. Have an allergy test done to detect the allergens and avoid them as much as possible

      7. Keep the home dust free-use a good quality hepa air purifier at home-I am using blue air, it is a good one

      8. Use a natural nasal spray-the good thing about the natural one is that you could use it for long-I recently bought xclear nasal spray and it seems to be working well for congestion.

      I am sure all of these measures would be of great helps for anybody who is suffering from respiratory problems triggered by allergies.

      Wishing you good health!

      Plase conside Balloon Sinuplasty. Its much safer than other methods, and it can be done in a day, and you go home on the same day. Turbinate reduction has the risk of a thing called ENS (Empty nose syndromed). This is where you feel like you are not breathing.

      All the best.

    Hi Ana

     As you are a chronic allergy sufferer, you will get great benefit from Evening Primrose Oil. I suffered constantly from hayfever, rhinitis and sinusitis for 65 years until I discovered this miracle product.

    It works by desensitising the nervous system, so that the body does not react to normal irritants. It takes about 4 hours to work, and it is effective for a further 24 hours, so one 1000 mg capsule daily is normally adequate. It is not a drug, so it has no adverse side affects and does not affect mental ability in any way.

    Read my Post “ Sinus Infection-An Effective Treatment,” for full details.

    Try it, you have nothing to lose, and it may be a miracle cure for you also.

    Kind Regards, Ray.

    I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery with a temporary improvement in my condition. It could definitely not alleviate my respiratory conditions possibly because my respiratory infections are triggered by my underlying allergic condition. The only notable improvement was that I am able do the nasal wash properly post the surgery compared to before.
