Procedure done to open sinus. Now unable to blow nose, gums draining, feel sick. How to treat?

My husband is 68 years old ,a smoker. He had a procedure that opens your sinus about 8years ago, after this procedure he cannot blow his nose and get any relief. His gums have been draining from his sinus and makes him so sick. we have been to about 3 dentist and oral surgeon, but they cannot find anything wrong what can we do or where can we go. The dentist said he needed to pull his teeth now he cannot wear his dentures because the draining is worse. It is like a sticky stringy like substance.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am glad you had a procedure done to open the sinus and are able to breathe better. If you are unable to blow the nose and your gums are draining, you probably have an infected site in the surgical wound and need to see a surgeon immediately. I hope this helps with the site of infection.

I hope this helps. Take care of yourself and have a lovely day!
