Is it worth doing deviated septum surgery?
I think it affects exercise and sleep. Doc said its up to me, when I put my finger inside my nose there is no space on the left side, then I put inside the head of a nasal spray and there is space.

What to do?

    i did it and it was good, but somebody told me you lose 30% of your IQ every time you go under anesthesia, so not sure

      on the other hand, you can't have a high iq if you believe it anyway, so the impact is pretty small

      It was a wise person who told you that, even if it's a bit of an exaggeration. However that's only general anaesthesia, local anaesthesia don't have the same effect. Otherwise I'd be minus IQ at this point from all the times I've had dental local anaesthesia.

        i guess it depends, can take some time depending what they remove, in my case it was deviated septum + removing inflamed nasal turbinates, i guess if it's only deviated septum may be enough with local anesthesia

      Retard. You shouldn't worry about it anyway since for you 30% would be 1 point.
      The only real danger of general anesthesia is a possibility of being raped.

    i heard they can do some simple thing now where they just insert balloons in your nostrils and inflate them till it corrects the septum, go home the same afternoon don't even need anesthesia

    My sister had this done because it somehow got to the point where the deviation pushed a nerve and caused frequent migraines

      I have an insanely whacked out septum that zigzags like a sideways W. Been having headaches recently and this might be related, I tried to reach into my face and push my septum into shape and it seemed to make it worse. Think I'll get the surgery

    I have a deviated septum, and sleep affects exercise recovery MASSIVELY. If you want to see what difference it makes, order some "nasal dilators" from Amazon and try them out.

    Personally, the first time I used them it was a little uncomfortable trying to sleep, but I woke up feeling like a million bucks. Previously I got patellar tendonitis easily from cycling, got injured regularly weight lifting, and my recovery was generally shit even on a bulk. Now even on a steep cut (-6000 cals/week), I can cycle 4 20 miles days a week, lift 3 times a week and not even lose any strength. Never get tendonitis anymore, and only get injured when I do something stupid - and then recovery is extremely quick. It's been a total game changer for me.

    If you want to try it bro, I use "Unhulu nasal vents" (google it) - these are nice soft latex vents that come in multiple sizes. I had no idea how bad my sleep was before, I wish I had found these years ago.

      I might try something like this. I always have to sleep on my right side because my right nostril collapses when I'm laying down so it needs to be on the low side so I can breathe freely through the left one. I noticed that if I grab my right nostril and hold it open I'm actually able to breathe freely through it so if something like this held it open all night that could be a game changer. I should probably just get the surgery I suppose.

    I had surgery to fix my deviated septum

    Night and day difference now. Prior to surgery, I could maybe get 30% of a normal inhale through my nose when it wasn't blocked.

    Now I can breathe clearly through my nose at all times. Helps incredibly while doing cardio. Also, breathing through your nose is life changing while sleeping. I wake up way less groggy now and actually feel energized.

    Would highly recommend getting the surgery. Septoplasty is what it's called

      Can you do it if you also have perforation? Not only is my septum fucking deviated AF, I also have basically a cut in the septum and due to deviation there's just this fucking hole there.

    >not straightening your septum through manual exercises instead of paying a doctor a shitload to do it with many risks involved

    I feel like I can breathe perfectly fine through my nose when I'm upright and awake but when I go to sleep, for whatever reason, after some random amount of time between 2 and 5 hours I suddenly wake up with one side of my nose completely impassable, the turbinates get inflamed I think, and I can't draw enough air in to stay asleep, I keep waking up every time I drift off again with apnea. It's pretty awful, but I don't know if the septum is the cause or what, it feels like it's backed up higher in the bridge somewhere than around the nostrils.

    Could breathe a lot easier after doing it, so was worth it.

    Just keep in mind, it hurts a lot the first couple of days and you cant really work out for 3 weeks or you'll get nosebleeds.

    I bought this soft silicone thing for 2 euros. Don't snore anymore and sleep like a baby ever since. I'm not taking some surgery for a 2 euro solution.

      Ok I just bought some vents, God I hope these do something.

    My dad had one cause of breaking his nose a ton when he was young (fights and stuff). He got the surgery done a few years ago and he said it's such a huge difference. Go for it anon
