Brief Answer:
Review CT,Steroid nasal spray,Thyroid test

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query.

1. Comparing a new plain Sinus CT with any previous Sinus CT along with the clinical and operative notes may help understand the changes in the nose and sinuses.

2. Request your doctor to start a Steroid nasal spray for at least two weeks. One of the reasons for your weight gain might be the oral steroids (Omnacortil-prednisolone)

3. Get your Thyroid Function Tests done to rule out Hypothyroidism.

4. Upload these test results and CT images for further advice.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
