Deviated septum affect on COPD

Deviated septum affect on COPD

Deviated septum (one nostril often blocked) has been a lifetime annoyance, but since severe COPD it's a torture. Anyone have answers on how to deal with it, other than surgery?

I use a saline nasal rinse every day to help with my sinuses. Sometimes I do it 2 or 3 times a day. It really helps. It is OTC. I also see a ENT and allergist.

Surgery is not too bad of an options. I had the surgery 30 some years ago. Only discomfort I had was when they removed the packing (gauze), and 24 hours having to breathe only through my mouth.
