I didn't have this procedure to reduce my turbinates, how does this method works? Btw, can I ask what was the method you had the first time you went to reduce your turbinates and how did a 2nd nasal obstruction occur? Does somnoplasty hurt as bad as the traditional method?
LOL... maybe there are gaps or tubes running along the packing so you could breathe. I can feel that my right nose is starting to block a little again which I feel sad and disappointed about. I certainly don't want to go thru the surgery again. Let me know if you are going to have the somnoplasty and how it works.
im just guessing. i did have limited ess, though. my right maxillary sinus had a bit of mucus in it, so they had to clean it out. i think ess is just for unblocking/ cleaning out any infected sinus cavities. somnoplasty is specifically for the turbinates.
