I have sinusitis trouble for 3 to 4 months. I am taking cetrizine tablets whenever i got running nose. I took x-ray from appollo hopitals, chennai (report attached), last month & the doctor told me that i am having sinus trouble and he gave me augmentin duo 625mg tablet for 5 days. Now 2 days back again i got the same trouble running nose, throat infection & then fever. Yesterday I consulted ENT doctor & he gave me Glevo POD, Relent tablets. But i want permanent solution for this trouble. I am running a restaurant so i want more concentration on work Both the doctors told me that i am having a deviation in my inner nose & i have to operate to remove it

Brief Answer: Endoscopy and opening of sinus may help. Detailed Answer: Hello, Sinusitis is known to recur or persist partially even after good treatment.So correcting underlying causes is must to get a permanent relief. Sinuses have natural system of draining out their secretions and when this is hampered you get recurrent sinusitis.In addition as diabetic you are more prone to get infection in such blocked sinuses. So opening up sinuses pathways with endoscopy and if needed correcting deviated nasal septum can provide good results. All medications will provide temporary solutions , particularly when underlying cause remains unchanged. So I agree with your doctor about getting operated. Hope this answers your questions.Please ask if there are doubts. Regards.
