    I had my nose cauterised when i had my tonsils out when i was 9. Before that i had at least 3 or 4 nose bleeds a week. Ive not had one nosebleed since i was 9, best thing i had done :thumb:

    Had my adanoids out when I was about 4. Had my nose cauterised twice since then, and I'm going back to get it done again on Wednesday. Should be fun.

    I thought you only had to have it done the once, maybe i was wrong :confused:

    Its probably effective on some but not on others

    I've always wanted to get my nose cauterised, as I bleed very frequently, especially during spring, as I'm allergic to polen and therefore much prone to sneezing and generally rubbing my nose. So, does it hurt? Is there a downside to it?

    Bluewisdom - I did a thread asking what you just have, a while back. Someone said that they give you some numbing stuff so that you can't feel anything whilst they sort your nose out.
