Sorry to hear about your problems. Very serious!
You should never mess with turbinates, as they serve a major function ... warming the air that you are inhaling, that then goes into your lungs. Some doctors do remove them if they are swollen, but it is a bad idea.
One of my medical websites states the following: "Removing turbinates is a bad idea. If you did, you would have dryness, crusting and sensations of burning pain. Doctors have therefore come up with various ways to reduce the blockage of your nasal passages without removing your turbinates and their cilia."
Is there any surgical recourse?
I wish you luck!
