What's your experience with turbinectomy for dry nose and throat?
My ENT doctor recommends a bilateral inferior turbinectomy for me. I have never been able to breath through my nose very well and it's always dry. My mouth and throat are often dry too.
My real problem is being able to breathe well when I lie in bed. My nose and mouth become more dry and sometimes my throat gets congested. I sometimes wake up feeling kind of bad, like maybe I'm not getting enough air.
I have read comments by some who have problems after a turbinectomy. It makes me hesitant to have it done. My condition isn't horrible to live with. I read a comment by one person who recommended the Vivaer procedure as an alternative. Does anyone here have this type of problem or had surgery for it?
