Can surgery cure asthma ?

Hello Doctor the case is about My wife , she has asthma from time to time , but that happens only if her nose nasal passage are blocked , some time both passages some time only one . And her asthma gets worse and worse if it is both . She used a lot of sprays but no great affect until lately she used ... , and it made a different by reducing the mucus in her nose and thus breathing normally most of the time. I read a lot lately about deviated spetrum surgerys and turbinates (i guess ) so we made a ct scan please see below the pictures and tell me if it requires a surgery.

Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
Your wife is probably suffering from chronic sinusitis with DNS. Well there can be hyperplastic mucosa in sinuses due to sinusitis also. Contrary to views expressed, an allergy can only be avoided, not cured. Modern sinus surgeries like FESS are safe & effective in expert hands. Please take second ENT opinion but go for surgery. Donot fear of a repeat surgery because any disease can occur again. so will you not treat due to this reason (ie. recurrence). Good luck.

Many people have Deviated nasal septum & most of them are fine without surgery.Recurrent rhinitis ;sinusitis causes it so better try to remove the cause & treat her for nasal problems.Nasal polyp is also surgery but these surgery don't help all & in most people even repeat surgery is required .Please take a second opinion of a ENT & discuss the pros & cons.Till then continue the medicine which has given her some relief &if you believe may be you can try Homoeopathy it should help.
