I was introduced to Dr. Gan Eng Cern by other specialist surgeons who also go to him for their ENT issues. My surgery and treatment journey has been a smooth experience with very satisfying results, I have since brought many of my family and friends to see him for their sinus, blocked nose, sleep and snoring issues.
I have been suffering from severely blocked nose since young, my allergies made it worse and then as an adult i started to snore and it got worse over the years. Loud snoring affected my wife, she would find it hard to get to sleep. With our new baby sleeping in our bedroom, i now have double the reasons to get my snoring sorted. I was advised to try conservative treatment including sprays and C-pap but sprays had little effect on me due to my crooked septum and large turbinate which blocked much of my nasal canal, this is made worse when my allergies kick up, the swelling of my turbinate would block the entire passage way.
My surgery was surprisingly uneventful, i was expecting a lot of pain or at least i was expecting that i would not be able to go to work or drive a car. Dr. Gan must have been very delicate a surgeon, there was no swelling of my nose nor was there any pain. It was as though nothing had happened. There was some bleeding for the next few days and spotting during the next few weeks of recovery as expected of recovering wounds but i was able to go back to the office on the same day and continue with light work, drive and continue with everyday life largely unaffected. A very patient and caring doctor, he makes sure his patients feel comfortable and reassured.
