Had sinus surgery. Pulled out packing, unsoluble stitching from nose. Having pain in nose. Solution?

I had sinus surgery March 12th. My nose was fractured, I had a deviated septum and the sinus passages were very narrow. I ve been using the sinus rinse without any problem until today. When trying to rinse my nose I had excruciating pain it felt like my sinus was blocked. I had a follow up today and the PA pulled out packing from my nose that was not supposed to be there plus an inch long piece of dis-solvable stitching that wasn t cut off. The PA probed and irrigated and said I shouldn t have any more problems with irrigating my sinus s. 5 hours later I tried to irrigate and nothings changed. The pain I get is like when you get water up your nose when your swimming. It s very painful and brings me to tears . I ve been dealing with the sinus problems for at least 5 years and I m at the end of my rope. I thought the surgery would solve my problems. Can you explain to me what s happening and what I should do?

ENT Specialist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query and as you said that you were having three problems-
(1) Sinusitis.
(2) Deviated nasal septum.
(3) Fracture of nasal bones.

As you said you were operated for your sinus problem and after some time you got a packing in your nose and the symptoms same as before operation. To manage your problem it is necessary to evaluate your condition of nose and paranasal sinuses by thorough examination and suitable investigations and than one can decide it's planning for treatment. This can be possible by help of an ENT specialist only.
