Welcome to HCM.
Deviated nasal septum (DNS) causes difficulty in breathing due to unequal passage of nostrils and may be resposible for chronic sinusitis. Surgery can correct this problem but if your problem is due to allergy, surgery cannot rectify it.
Consult an allergy specialist and get treatment and if it improves your condition then surgery may not be necessary, but if that does not give relief then you should certainly consider surgery for DNS.
Wish you best of every thing.

Hi well come to HCM.
Since you are allergic and have chronic symptoms you can get of nasal obstruction
only. That surgery will not help you to get rid of Allergy so rest of things will remain
like that only and chances of polyp development also will not be removed.So decision
should be taken by you after knowing the benifits of surgery. Thanks
