I have lived about 4 years with my nose being blocked on one side of my nose always the right. When i was 10 i got ran over by a sled, sounds kinda funny doesnt it? But the pain i went through that undescribable! it almost looked like someone punched my eyes because of the black eyes i had from it. my nose was soo swollen and my nose wouldnt stop bleeding. Since i was at my grandmas when it happened i decided not to go to there hospital they had long waiting times rather than my hospitals. SO i just left it because of my fear of hospitals/doctors at the time.
So for the last 4 years i suffered oneside always always blocked hardly ever was unblocked happened the odd time if i was lucky!
So last year i finally just got TIRED of it. So i saw a ent. I new that day i was either being told you have to have your nose fixed or tonsils out.
But if i had it my way still i wouldnt have done anything.
I found out i had a deviated septum and the only way to fix it was surgery. SO off i went on my newest adventure concuring something im terrified of.. SURGERY!!!!
And i must say i was a basket case once i found out my surgery date. BUt hte day of surgery i was calmer than ever. And woke up NO PAIN ( without any pain killers) and happier than ever even though my cheeks and face where swollen and having stents in my nose! BUT I COULD BREATHE ALREADY BETTER!!!!
WHen i went home the only time i ever saw blood was from the car ride. And imust say for the firrst while you want to keep up with pain killers because you get the worst headache but if your on painkillers your fine. ANd aslong as you clean your nose more thant hey suggest youll do amazzing!!
ANd once those stents come out, youll wonder and ask yourself why didnt i do it before now! Im soooo glad i went through with it! i dont know how bad it was but im pretty sure bad or not you have to have it surgically fixed. And even if your scared of doing it dont be!! Its not a bad surgery at all. and the end product its absolutly amazing!
i have been waiting and waiting to be able to give someone advice on this, because how i feared it all, and after going through it am soo glad i did, i want to help someone else get what it feels like to have UNBLOCKED nasal passages again!
I was the person who hated to use nasal sparys they never did a thing for two seconds maybe and then boom! BACK again. Like a person you dont like tha tjust keeps comng back like they are your best friend! But if you do have a deviated septum and can get surgery for it i wuold say just do it!
And see an ent when you can, you wont regret the decision because i sure dont and its made me get over my fear of surgery. Which im glad for because of having two up coming ones!
and i hope all works out for you!!
