    Deviated septum help?

    This is something i've been struggling with for the better part of a decade. It seems to be getting worse as i get older. Does anyone know if there's any home remedies for this or if there's anything that can be done prior to surgery?

    What problems is it causing you happy?

    i had a sinus infection for nearly a year before I had the surgery. I had lost my sense of smell. Afterwards I learned all sorts of tricks that kept me from getting to that point again.

    mucinex oral pill, nasal spray stuff that opens you up as well. Netipot is a true life saver. Vicks make a personal steamer that you stick your face into. Hot steam also life saving. First sign of a cold use cold eeze, allergy zyrtec- anything that can bother your nose take care of it before it become an issue. Did I mention flonase?

    The surgery wasn't much, never took the pain meds. I tried to go hiking the day after surgery- don't do that Slept for a couple of days. I remember the first thing I smelled was the flowers my friends sent. my nose was more attractive after the surgery, I was very happy for having it.
