Hi there.

Are you having any fever ?

If you are having yellowish nasal discharge, it could be infection. In this case, kindly take a tablet of Levofloxacin once a day after a meal for 5 days, under medical supervision. If you have fever, you can take Acetaminophen or Paracetamol tablet for relief, under medical supervision.

Also take Tablet Cetrizine to reduce nasal discharge. You can take a Cough syrup like Chericof to reduce chest congestion.

Hope that you get cured for your Surgery.

Wishing speedy recovery.
