Breathing difficulty due to nasal blockage. What percentage of nasal blockages cause difficulty in breathing?

Hello, I have a question about nasal blockage. I was watching a reality tv show and a girl went in saying that she has had trouble breathing which I have had for the past year or so now. She had the surgery, but when I looked it up online it said that she had 8 percent nasal blockage and that seemed low to me, but I have no idea. I was wondering what the typical amount percentage of nasal blockage most candidates have who are considered. Also, could this mean different things such as narrow nasals, deviated septum , or anything else I could have thanks!

Thanks for writing to us.
There are many factors which need to be considered before deciding in favor of surgery in case of a nsal blockage. Most of the times it is associated with a structural abnormality or a chronic sinusitis. An evaluation by an ENT specialist will be of help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
