Thank you for your query.

1. I am assuming that you have had a trial of medical therapy which has not improved your nasal obstruction.

2. Get a plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) with 1 mm coronal, axial and sagittal cuts done on a multi-slice CT Scan machine. This is the gold standard imaging on which your treatment and any surgery should be based.

3. If you can upload the Ct Scan images, I will be able to give you an accurate assessment.

4. There are a few new options such as radio-frequency ablation of nasal turbinates, co-ablation in addition to endoscopic septoplasty which may help.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
