i have a significantly deviated septum, but no allergy or sinus issues to go along with it, just 80% blockage one one nostril. breathe right strips make a HUGE difference, but after a visit to an ENT, he suggested septoplasty as a possible fix. coming from a running background, nose-breathing is something i have found more effective than mouth-breathing, though in a hard effort, mouth-breathing is the only option.
i race as cat 4 pack fodder, and would like to be more competitive, and am wondering how much (if at all) getting my deviated septum fixed would make a difference. has anyone here had the procedure and had a noticeable performance increase .
