    Turbinate Somnoplasty?

    Can anyone tell me about their experience(s) with Turbinate Somnoplasty? I was told yesterday that I have a slight deviated septum and swollen turbinates. My ENT recommended having Turbinate Somnoplasty to help increase my airways. It's not something I need to do ASAP, but within the next few months.

    I had it done. This ENT in So Cal said that I'd breathe much better and be really happy. After two surgeries (and all that money my insurance and I paid to this doctor), my breathing hasn't changed a bit for the better. Worse yet, I now have a runny nose on one side. So be careful.
