Having Sinus problem...

Exhaling from right nostril is difficult. Inhaling is difficult only when it is blocked due to cold. During night, breathing becomes difficult when the nose gets totally blocked. Will get relieved, when sprayed with Nasivion. Doctor says surgery has to be done... They used the term Septoplasty. There is a bend in bone inside nose. Is surgery required?

Opinion for septoplasty surgery is not possible without physical examination of nose. Take a second opnion before deciding. Nasivion spray is useful if only used for 3 to 5 days. For longer use it causes more blockage. So gradually reduce and stop nasivion.
