Septoplasty: How did it impact you?
I have a deviated septum and was trying to find others that have had a septoplasty to see what it was like and what impact it had on them after having the surgery. I'm really trying to find out if it's worth pursuing at my age (76) since I've lived with it so long. I'm also wondering whether it may help with some of the obstructive sleep apnea issues I have with mouth breathing. My sleep medicine doctor didn't seem to think it would make a big difference but I've struggled somewhat with using my CPAP and consistently getting good results over the past year. Sometimes I am able to clear my nose and breathe normal but the times are few and far between.
If you have had a septoplasty, are you happy with the results? Also, would be interested in talking with anyone who has had a septoplasty and also has obstructive sleep apnea.
