Hello, this is a follow up post, my second post. Here was my original post from 12/30/06:
And here is the link with a couple MRI slices shown:
Since I made the last post, I've been diagnosed with a severely deviated septum by an ENT. He thinks that although the tumor doesn't help with my head pain, he gladly offered me a turbinectomy and septum straitening surgery as he told me it "may" help with my 24/7 frontal headache.
If you were me, would you just say the heck with it and get the turbinectomy to see what happens? I mean, not to take surgery lightly, but that surgery is no big deal, right? Plus, I'm sort of in desperation for an answer to my pain since the typical medications (elavil topamax, etc) were of no real help.
My other question is unrelated, but I wanted to ask...Does vigorous exercise pose any risks as far as my 3.5x2.4 cm osteoma is concerned? I frequently workout---cardiovascular exercise with heart rate of 165-180 for 45 minutes at a time, and some weight lifting. Should I be worried about any problems with the tumor from intense exercise? (exercise doesn't make my headache worse, in fact the post-workout endorphine release seems to help a bit).
So, what do you think about these 2 unrelated questions? And anything else you can offer to help me would be appreciated. Thank you again, very much.
