I've had daily pain on the left side of my face since I had turbinectomy and septoplasty surgery about a year ago. I'm 19. The middle and inferior turbinates were reduced in the surgery. The surgeon didn't know what's wrong. I visited an ENT specialist afterwards but he didn't know what's wrong either. I've noticed that the pain goes away when I bend down. Can anyone help?

  • What it an ENT who did your surgery? I have a cousin who is a ENT. If you didn't find out what was wrong, it mind be ENS that you have or tedeness in your facial muscle. I would concern another specialist who would know more.
