  1. Hello Dr. Park. My question is related to septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery. I had the surgery done about four months ago but ever since the surgery my nose always feels blocked. I visited my ENT recently who said that the my left side’s turbinates have swelled up and are blocking the airway. What do you think should be done in such a situation? Could this go away on its own eventually or would a further surgical treatment be required to treat it? Thank you.

  2. Usama,

    Sorry to hear about your suboptimal results. There are a number of different reasons why you may be stuffy. Only your ENT can tell you since he or she has the benefit of an exam. Sometimes the turbinates do swell up, and typically it gets better with time. Was surgery done on the turbinates as well? I defer to your ENT about the next steps.

    Good luck…

  3. Thank you very much for the reply. I really appreciate it. Yes, the turbinates were reduced along with straightening the septum. Thanks, I’ll follow it up with my ENT and see what solution he can find.
