I am sorry to hear about your problem. I had the surgery about 3 yrs. ago and I am going to be truthful with you, it really wasn't that bad. The procedure itself wasn't bad. The only thing that bother me was after the surgery you will have tubes inserted in your nose (at least I did)and it was very uncomfortable. But if you just relax and breath normal you should not have any problems. I know each person has their own opinion and pain tolerance but hopefully your recovery will be like mine! GOOD LUCK!!!!
