It's called a deviated septum.I had surgery last November and the difference is incredible.The procedure is called a septoplasty.

How do you know if you have it?
I eat my boogers and don't have any trouble, but I'd still like to know.In 1945, Adolf Hilter died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied, "I am responsible for the massacre of millions" Satan said, "well done, sit to the right of my throne." In 1953, Joseph Stalin died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied "I killed millions to stay in power" Satan said "good, sit to my left" 2010, Ronnie James Dio died and went to Hell, Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" Dio replied, "Bitch, get the fuk off my throne!"

Maybe just do most of your breathing from the right nostril??? Ever consider that?
I think I was blessed with a granite nose. I've never even had a nose bleed, but it's taken some shots in my days.The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

I can usually only breathe out of one nostril clearly at a time....and the weird thing is that it switches which one every so often! It personally is kind of annoying.
So, dumb question maybe, but can you have the septum just, taken out? You know, and have basically one big nasal passage, so you don't have to worry about re-injury?BB.com's jiu-jitsu team

And you can take the septum out... but then you'd have no cartilage in your nose and would probably look fuked up.
And yeah OP the septum is cartilage, not bone. I had a septoplasty 1.5 years ago.

My brother had to ge a deviated septum fixed with surgery he got his nose broke with a baseball bat. Any way, it took about six weeks to heal but it wasn't really a problem they just told him not to mess around with his nose or anything if he had to blow it. They did it when it was still broken though, I guess they put these metal rods up each nostril and just kind of jerked it hard until it was straightened out, then gave him some pain pills and sent him home. He was anaesthetized for the procedure though.Tie your shoes = ready for anything

Good point. My friend's thoughts exactly (got his from a knee to the face in sparring).
Not sure how sound that advice is from a medical stand point (probably should get it fixed if you are having trouble sleeping for lack of oxygen or from the pounding on the head your girl gives you for snoring way too f'in loud), but it makes sense in a weird way.Poi Dog
