Question

Hi Doc, I had an operation last year on my nose to widen my passageways because I had alot of problems breathing through it. Would this operation hinder me from recreational and commercial diving?

As long as you can equalise and don't suffer from any sinus congestion or breathing difficulties now, then you should be fine to resume diving.

Regards, Dr O
