THE SURGERY IS DONE TO PERFORM CORRECTION OF NASal passages so that the obstruction is cleared as there are many factors in this
if you have no major block controllin the nasal secretions and keeping the size of all turbinates i nose by precautions can help you
as these are hypertrohied due to reular exposure to dust in indis
to prevent size increase of turbinates and exposure to allergens apply neomycin h ointment in nose bd for 6 months to prevent allergen from touching nasal mucosa
put sea water 2 drops at night in each nose to drain mucus and clear nose and throat
avoid medicines which can increase mucus secretions in nose and sinuses
take antiallergic sos for blockage and irritation
you can try for 6 months
