Polyps surgery done, get frequent nose blocks, breathing affected. Remedy?

Hello Doctor , i am suffering from Polyps since last 4 years, i had done my surgery in the first year but Polyps returned immediately after surgery. One side of the nose use to be blocked, but since last 10 days both the side are completely blocked and i cannot breathe. Although sometime i can inhale from one side partially but cannot exhale. Also while blowing the nose i cannot even draw a force from inside to blow the nose. Help me out. All i am doing right now is mouth breathing .

hello and welcome to HCM,

The treatment of polyps is removal and complete removal only with a good surgeon and using the latest technique called the microdebrider. If you have undergone polyp surgery before then it may not have been removed completely. Sometimes you may have to do recurrent surgeries to keep them in check

To improve on your nose block however you may do the following:
1. Do steam inhalation regularly
2. Do breathing exercises like the pranyama (google it to get the details)
3. Do nasal lavage as instructed after surgery

do not try to blow your nose so hard because your blowing will only cause more strain.
Meet an ENT and get the problem solved as soon as possible (Endoscopy then CT then maybe FESS)

take care and get well soon
