Anything you can recommend or am I whining about nothing?
When I was 22 I broke my nose, and didnt do anything about it, until 5 years later, when I was having difficulty breathing through my nose. The ENT consultant said that I had experienced a rather nasty break of the bridge of the nose. With one side looking like a stair case and the other side just not looking right at all. Anyway after an operation, where they chipped some of the bone away and cleaned out the nasal passages, it was fine. I am now 36 and I have started to have the same problems arise, My body mass is now 70lbs heavier, although only having 20% body fat, I was a bodybuilder for 5 years, so the majority of the extra weight is muscle mass. Could the same medical problems re-occur? (I realise that is a, "how long is a piece string"? question) for any reason at all? No matter what I do, health and fitness wise, nothing helps. And if I go into hot environments such as, steam rooms or the sauna at the gym, my nose completely feels blocked. In a nutshell my nasal passages, are constantly feeling swollen.
It is not uncommon for someone with nasal obstruction to have surgery more than one time. The tissues swell again after being surgically reduced. You might try a prescription nasal steroids spray on a daily basis to try to control this swelling before having surgery again. I would speak with your doctor about this.
