Have deviated septum. What options could there be for the future?

After dealing with breathing issues, allergies, drainage and mucus in my throat and a constant hoarse voice I visted my ENT Dr. He told me I have a deviated septum and large tonsils...which of course doesn t help me deal with my allergies. I go in tomorrow for a CT Scan. Just curious what options could be in my future? I am a 33 yr old female.

Dear customer,

The hoarse voice and difficulty in breathing is likely to be associated with enlarged tonsl and deviated septum.

You should consider the surgical options if the above condition could not be treated by medical management.

The tonsillectomy and septoplasty is advised to you for your symptoms.

Thank you
