I had it done two days ago. My septum was all crooked and I was pretty much congested all Winter, so I went ahead and had it done... they had to remove a pocket of stuff on my left side too. Let's just say the recovery isn't fun at all. First day my nose was packed and I couldn't really feel a thing (I guess still out of it from the anesthesia). Yesterday morning they removed the packing then put some lidocaine in there to numb it all so it wasn't that bad... Today holy crap. I have painkillers for the pain and they're making me extremely dizzy. So I'm either in pain, or totally out of it. It's a blast. Plus my nose is congested (I have to rinse it twice a day, but can't blow my nose, so it's a mess in there, I've blown very gently to get some water out and omg it hurts even if I took painkillers). I can breathe through my right nostril at least, the left one not so much. And I keep getting junk in my throat from nasal drip. Has anyone got it done before and how long did it take to recover? I'm having major remorse right now, lol.
