I had this done many years ago and I will agree with you. It was one of the most uncomfortable, miserable recoveries I have ever had! I hope it has gotten better over the years as so much has, but here we are about 25 years or so down the road and I am on my machine. According to the doc that did the surgery years ago the Turbinates can grow back to where they were and it may have to be done again. I opted not to even have that checked out. I won't go through that again. I actually had a nerve near the tip of my nose damaged during the surgery so that even today, every once in awhile I get a searing pain like someone is shoving a needle through my nose and there is nothing wrong. Luckily over the years that has become much less often so that it only happens 3-4 times a year now and only lasts for a few minutes. Good luck with the rest of your recovery. I sure hope that in the end you have better success than I did!
