I recently got a septoplasty and my doctor said that I had a deviated septum. The reason for my blockage and congestion was my septum, which was messed up and misaligned. I did, however abuse cocaine four years ago and felt that I caused some erosion. Ever since then my sinus infections increased. I was also experiencing blockage and breathing issues, which was worsening over time. My doctor said that my septum problem was either congenital or I got hit with something. I am wondering if I actually realigned my septum due to my insufflations of cocaine or my condition was worsening over time. Does cocaine place the nose off center? Will it cause breathing issues? Please explain.
