Bones forming sinuses are normal. 8. Attenuation of visualised brain parenchyma is normal.

Thanks for consulting H.C.M. in your medical query.

I have gone through your query regarding your headache and pain over nose, I have also co-related findings of C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses and thus came to conclusion that you are having right maxillary sinusitis with polyp with deviated nasal septum to left with bilateral inferior turbinate hypertrophy.

Your disease can't be treated by medicines. You really need operative intervension and as per report of C.T.scan you need FESS (functional endoscopic sinus surgery) with septoplasty operations. You have asked about result and complications of surgical proceedure, for this I would like to tell you to consult any senior ent surgeon who is expert in endoscopic surgeries to give you good results. By expert hands if any complication arises during surgery that can be handled easily due to his past experiences. On the other hand if you donot accept above option than your disease will progress and you will land in some complications of disease itself.

I hope your query is now explained well and every thing is clear to you.

With Regards.
