Nasal polyps require FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery) and not Septoplasty, which is optional. A Surgical Micro-debrider instrument is the best way to tackle ployp removal. Get a plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinus) Scan done. Medical therapy may help if you have multiple polyps. If, on your CT PNS Scan, you have only one sided polyp/s, you may have an AC Polyp or an Inverted Papilloma where surgery is the only option. It is important to get a clear diagnosis. For this, a diagnostic nasal endoscopy and a CT PNS are the gold standard pre-operative investigations. Kindly get these done and post your results for further guidance.

Thanks for query,
You might have nasal polyp as well as DNS i.e.deviated nasal septum.
So first go for x ray PNS and confirm the diagnosis.
Of course in both conditions surgery is a must.
There is no side effects after surgery.
Ok and bye.
