OSA after septo/rhinoplasty
I underwent surgery for deviated septum 3 days back. Surgery went fine and there is minimal blood / pain. However when sleeping on my back i often wakeup in the night trying to take a breathe and it is happening multiple times.(obstructive sleep apnea). Can i do anything to fix this? TIA.
