Septoplasty & Limited FESS Surgery tomorrow... do you need a breathing tube?
Tomorrow I'm going in for a septoplasty to remove a bone spur blocking off my left sinus and getting limited FESS on my left side to (hopefully) help with my drainage problems... I'm excited for sinus pressure free days, but also a bit timid at the same time.
I know plenty of people here have had this surgery performed... did anyone have a breathing tube inserted? I have a slight neck/throat phobia, and the thought of having a tube inserted in my throat is scaring me to death (even though I know I will be knocked out). Is is necessary for a septoplasty?
