Problem breathing through nostrils, DNS towards right, turbinates in left nostril. Advised septoplasty. History of nasal cautery. Suggest

34, F, India
I have undergone nasal cautery nearly 15 years back to check frequent nose bleeding. The bleeding stopped after that but breathing problem began for the last approx. seven years.
I have problem in breathing through both the nostrils. I have DNS towards right and left nostril have turbinates. Based on endoscopy and CT of Nose and PNS the doctor advised septoplasty. What should I do?

Hello,
I went thro' your history. your past cauterization is different from your present problem. The Deviation of Nasal Septum (DNS) is confirmed by all tests. The best thing is - do a Sub Mucosal Resection of septum (SMR). that will relieve all your problems and follow ENT Dr's advise in the Post operative period also.
Best wishes
