I have had a problem with an ulcer in my left nostril for many years. I have used saline sprays and naseptin cream to soften the crusting. I had it cauterised a couple of years ago but it just comes back and the resulting scab interferes with my breathing (I also have asthma which doesn't help). In addition, I was informed a long time back that I also have a deviated septum. To cut a long story short, after a year's wait, I had an operation on Wednesday 8th May for what I thought was was going to be a biopsy on the ulcer and to rectify the deviated septum. My discharge notes say that I have had an Excision of lesion of nasal septum. I am confused over what exactly has been done and the discharging nurse wasn't able to answer my questions, which are: has the deviated septum been rectified, or have they just cut out the ulcer? Thank you for reading. Incidentally, I live in the UK.
