Septum Surgery is A Lot of Fun

Ooooowwwwww! For years now, I've been told I have sleep apnea, and a massively deviated septum. I guess I lived with it long enough to want to do something about it.

Yesterday, I had my face amputated. At least, that's what it feels like.

I can't imagine going through something like this for purely cosmetic reasons, yet people do that everyday. Bottom line is that surgifying your body for any reason takes it's toll.

The good news is that the docs say it went well, and as soon as the agony of recovery is over, I'll breathe like a new man.

I'm looking at it like a trade: a bit of misery for breathing while I sleep, a chance of snoring less (Chana rejoices), and perhaps an enhanced sense of smell.

Extra-Extra, read all about it: WebMD.

Wow! I think my husband needs this surgery too, although I only say that because of the snoring and snorting loudly and suddenly in the middle of the night... so that may mean sleep apnea but maybe not a need for a face amputation. hmmmm.

Hope you feel better soon.

My dad had a deviated septum. And he went through the surgery as well. I'm not sure if he snores less though...Funny but I've been thinking of my septum lately too...weird huh? Hope your face starts to feel normal again...and you start feeling better!
