I will try my best to answer your query.

Septoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum, the partition between the two nasal cavities. The procedure usually involves a judicious excision/realignment of a portion of the bone and/or cartilage in the nasal cavity. Under general or local anesthesia.

Symptoms due to DNS, can be corrected by surgery . Anxiety is very common for anyone who will be planned for surgery.

As you have informed that they will perform surgery under GA, you will be unconscious during the procedure. You will wake up once the GA is stopped.

You can consult the operating doctor for anxiolytic drug.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

take care.

Thanks for the query.
The treatment of choice for symptomatic DNS is septoplasty. This is a simple surgical procedure done under general anaesthesia. You will be not feel any pain during the surgery as you will be under anaesthesia. The surgery involves removing the small deviated portion of the nasal septum(bone) so that it becomes straight. You should definitely get the surgery. Try to relax and stay calm.
Hope this helps. All the best. Have a healthy life.

Hi there. Septoplasty will straighten out the cartilage that divides your nostrils into left and right. This should allow your sinuses, on the side of your face your septum is bent towards, to drain more freely and get rid of a lot of the stuffiness you describe. Also, if there is a nasal polyp, that often develops with DNS, this too can be dealt with giving you further relief.

I think you misunderstood the doctor about "fainting you". You will be given a light general anaesthetic during which you will feel absolutely nothing nor remember anything afterwards -- as if you have fainted.

This operation may not cure you of all all that ails you But it will fix a lot of it. You have nothing to worry about. I hope you enjoy better health soon..
