. The adhesion we noticed today was tiny, literally about 1mm in size on the left side. This happens on occasion when the lining inside the nose has been roughened after a septoplasty and turbinate reduction. As the lining is healing, the rough edges can rarely want to heal together. This required a simple lysis or separation of the edges under local anesthesia and the problem should be entirely solved. We placed a small piece of dissolvable gelfoam to maintain that separation for a few days while the edges heal. There is no other care required. There really should be no risk of infection or other concern. And, we have never seen one come back.
That is what my doctors said. SO it was really no big deal and they saw it right away and fixed me up! They are so awesome! They did not even charge me like most doctors probably would have. I feel great now! Everything is healing perfectly and this was no biggie. I am glad they want to keep seeing me so much even way after my surgery. They have my money and everythig is done but they still want to see me a lot to keep checking on my progress.
LOVE THESE GUYS! They are so on it. My mom was worried and wrote them about this and they wrote back ASAP with a very detailed description on what they did. They are so awesome. I cannot believe how well I am breathing now FINALLY for the first time in my life i can freaking breathe !!!!! I am so grateful. I probably would have never had this done if I couldnt breathe right, that really pushed my decision. I see the doctors again in 2 weeks so they can check on me.
And Kristen everyone is different, everyone heals differently and has different things go on. so you prob healed perfectly
