Hello dear,

Thanks for writing at HCM

As your son is only 12 year old.and last year he went for surgery and now in present if he has very much difficulty in breathing due to internal structure of nose the medication alone will not help.If their is a severe block then it could pressure on his other veins damaging it.So it is better to go to a specialize,who could diagnose the actual problem and suggest you better

However if your child goes after the doctor say for surgery then make sure it is done from specialize person in that field .But you dont need to worry, these surgeries do not have much complications and now days done successfully without any complication but a proper study of that individual case or condition is needed
