Hi, your general anaesthesia will not lead to vertigo so long after the surgery. Please get your haemoglobin checked and if anaemia, go for a peripheral blood film examination. Regarding nasal obstruction usually there is inferior turbinate hypertrophy on the side opposite to the DNS and this leads to obstruction on both sides. Get an ENT consultation and go ahead with surgery if your doctor things so. Regards
