Hi someboy,

Thanks for sharing your experience. I admire your perseverance.

Sounds like your nasal surgery was successful and without problems. I'm very glad this was your experience, because sometimes there have been very bad problems caused by nasal surgery.

I am a mouth breather because of a deviated septum. I had a slight turbinate reduction surgery a few years ago, which helped slightly.

I am not considering more extensive nasal surgery because I do not want to risk experiencing some of the many possible bad side effects which are risks of the more extensive nasal surgeries.

For example, many descriptions of problems caused by nasal surgery can be found by searching on google for "empty nose syndrome".

Here is one link:

Take care,
--- Vaughn
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
