Brief Answer: Steroid nasal spray and oral steroids Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Your CT scan PNS is showing the changes of pansinusitis which is due to blockade in the drainage and ventilation pathways of the sinuses. A prolonged course of intra nasal steroid sprays with short course of oral steroids along with nasal decongstants is usually tried before planning for surgery. If your doctor has already tried this and this scan is post medical treatment, endoscopic surgery is a good option. Persistent of symptoms post medical treatment is an indication for surgery. Otherwise, the main complaint is obstruction which can be because of a deviated septum and concha bullosa. This part will also be addressed in the surgery. If not willing for surgery, above mentioned medical treatment can be tried for extended duration. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
