What course of treatment should be done for a deviated septum of the nose?

I’ve a deviated septum of my nose, the doctor said surgery is not needed until I face any sort of problem like air obstruction through nose. Well, should I opt for it now as I m 18 and young, or leave it until any problem comes, because maybe in old age it’ll be difficult to do a surgery. Also, are any complications there???? Will my nose be forever weak??

I am a 40 year old woman, five foot ten inches 165 pounds. I have been diagnosed with a deviated septum and left sinus congestion, due to no drainage. I am having a septoplasty and sinus surgery in 4 months. Lately, after eating I will sneeze or blow my nose and food will be expelled out of my right nostril. What should I do?

I had surgery to correct a deviated septum 4 weeks ago. I recently had a severe nosebleed treatment required nasal packing. Could sudden cooler air, I work outside, be the culprit? Also I was working a week before the bleed in a shed with rodent droppings. Should hantavirus be a concern at this stage
