Thanks for writing in to us.

Deviated nasal septum (DNS) is a condition where the bony central wall inside the nasal cavity is crooked or bent more towards one side. It can be mild, moderate or severe. In severe DNS patients usually complain of heaviness in head, sinusitis and upper respiratory infections regularly.

You are possibly having a moderate or severe DNS and hence your symptoms.
The surgery is known as Septoplasty. The surgeon carefully takes out a small part of the bony septum under anaesthesia. There will be little discomfort for 2 days after surgery and then you will slowly get relief from all symptoms.

Hope this helps.

Radiologist Dr. Radha Narayanan's  Response
welcome to would advise you to get a ct scan of the nose and paranasal sinuses done to confirm the septum deviation,sinusitis and any other problem.If septum is deviated so much causing nasal blockade Such a condition is best treated by an operation called a septoplasty, where the surgeon frees and straightens the septum, thus improving the nasal airway. Medication has little role to play unless there is superadded infection or allergy. Septoplasty surgery is very effective in the appropriate setting and the cost would depend on the individual surgeon, the nature of anaesthesia (local or general) and the hospital where it is carried out.Take care.
