I had a septoplasty operation November 2009 but i never had no allergies problems, my nose was never congested but the septum was blocking 1 of my nostril and to be fair i never did have any breathing problems. i decided to go through with it.

Ever since I've had the operation I've always found 1 of my nostrils always blocked, never the same nostril, always changes, congestion in the morning, i can't sleep at all, headaches, fatigue.

I've been to the ENT, they told me it's a nasal cycle, i asked them will it ever go away, they didn't even give me a answer propery, my doctor prescirbed steroid sprays which didn't work 1 bit.

Just wondering if anybody has had the same symptoms as me & cured it somehow? netti-pot maybe?

  • Some people have found Neti pots helpful for this type of symptom, as well as other methods of nasal irrigation such as by hand or with a bottle. Personally I'm now using Sinox spray to great effect. It contains modern salts and carbonates which dissolve mucus and clear out contaminants, and you get it in a convenient spray bottle. I find that I finally have some degree of control over my sinus health. You can try out a variety of solutions to discover what works best for you!
