Question: If I blow my nose it comes out of my eyes. Do I need sinus surgery?
Answered by Dr. Ganesh Sanap 3 hours later

It's not possible that after blowing your nose, the secretions come out through the eyes unless and until there is severe trauma, which causes fractures of the floor of the orbit.

Most probably you are having severe sinusitis which is causing fullness in the frontal sinuses. You must consult ENT Specialist for proper examination. If necessary, few investigations may be done like X-ray PNS and CT Scan PNW. However it can be decided after clinical examination too.

Hope I have addressed your query. If you have further concerns, please let me know.

Hello, i had cough and cold (heavy mucus) and chest cough for 1 and half month. Initially Doc treated with antallergic tablets like navision, alaspan. After some days I noticed blood during coughing. Informed doc and he aksed to go for blood test. It is normal except .5K less RBC and Lymphocytes increased by 1. Blood was only for 2-3 days (Noticed 4-5 times). Doc (ENT) said its may be because of some injury because of violent coughing. I took Pulmonary test too which shows everything normal. His diagnosis was that i have bronchitis and because of that I have cough. After one month he prescribed the tablet for bronchial asthama and specific medicine for cough ie rotacaps- Levolin for one week followed by another rotacap seroflow (250MG) . I was filling better except nose used to get blocked in between. Then all of a sudden, i again started sneezing (End of 5th week) and nose secretion begin again (Its was think and sticky). Again visited the doctor. he doubted some infection in the sinuses. Asked to go for a CT scan of PNS for Allergic Fungul Sinusitis. Scan shows that Maxillary Sinuses are filled with fluid. Scan shows that its quite significant. Doc mentioned that we haven t addressed Sinuses problem so far and because of that it kept growing in the sinus (told in simple language-- may be some other reason in medical terms). After knowing this now I am prescribed with Roxid-M tablet (1---0---1) for 7 days and Syscan 150mg weekly once for 3 week. Also I was using nasal spray Metaspray all these days. Now the enw spray is prescribed - Nasonex.. 2 puffs every night. In addition to this... Nasoclear Saline 3-3 drops twice a day for 2 months. I am in countinuous touch of the doc and he is well known ENT specialist and I am seeing him for quite a long time (More than 3 years). Every time i get cold, my cough sometimes last for more than 1 month and many times it turns into dry cough. But this time I had wet cough i.e. it was never dry. Just wanted to know if this is a normal problem or I need to do any further tests. As per teh doc, In my maxillary sinuses the air flow is too minimum as shown in the scan. and thats why its significantly contributing to the trouble. He also advised to start breathing exercises (Jal neti etc) for better results. Observation in CT Scan: Frontal sinuses- Clear Ethmoidal Sinuses: Soft tissues seen in the anterios, middle and posterios ethmoid sinuses Maxillary Sinuses: Polypoidal Soft tissues seen billaterally Spenoidal Sinuses: clear Osteomeatal Complexes: involved bilaterally Nasal turbinates: Noral Nasal Septum: DNS towards right with Bony Septal Spur Nasopharynx: normal Orbits: normal Impression: 1. Bilateral ethmoidal and maxillary sinusistis changes with involvement of the OM complexes 2. DNS seen towards the right with Bony septal spur Observations in Scan- My Septum is deviated right with bony spur. Please advise.

Respected sir, My 4year old daughter who weighs 19kg is suffering from Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction which a Doctor adviced to go for probing of left sided NLD. When went for a second opinion an other Doctor said that its too late to go for probing bcos her bone has grown and tissues are strong enought that probing will not help. The only solution is surgery. Her CT Scan also revealed that she has PARANASAL SINUSES which says septum is in midline. Mucosal thickening in bilateral maxillary and bilateral ethmoid sinuses Non pneumatised bilateral frontal sinusess Bilateral inferior turbinate hypertrophy Both infundibulae/OMC obstructed Hypertrophied adenoids narrowing the nasopharyngeal airway Motion artifacts noted. Could you please tell whether its emergency and surgery is needed at once?
