Brief Answer:
Try the following treatment.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query.

1. Tablet Montek LC should be enough to control the cold.

2. For the nasal blockage, use OTC Nasal decongestant drops ( 0.1 % Xylometazoline ) for a few days twice a day. Do not use these drops for more than two weeks. Start regular steam inhalation and hypertonic nasal saline washes (Nasowash, Physiomer).

3. Depending upon the symptoms and persisting cold and nasal block, other medication such as antibiotics (Augmentin), anti inflammatory (Disperzyme), mucolytics, nasal steroid sprays can be started under the supervision of a doctor.

4. If a CT Scan was done before surgery, upload some images, operative notes and if this problem persists, latest CT Scan images for comparison.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

I had a bad cold/flu in August 2012 it cleared up but I got another cold soon after this underlying sense of something not quite right with my lungs has continued. Over the past 3 months i have had cold feet which started with chilblains on both feet, something I have never had before. The cold feet and also tingling in my feet is continuing along with a sense that there is something not right with my lungs. I am 54 yrs old male fit and can still exercise although sometimes my throat becomes dry when breathing hard and can lead to a sore throat which passes quickly. I also have a back issue from playing golf and tennis and sitting down a lot in my work. I have addressed this by stopping these sports and sitting upright. I have most recently thought could i have chronic low level pneomonia. I also think stress could play a part so I am working less and resting more and meditating more.
Can you let me know what you think? I have had blood tests, heart listened to etc at the doctors all come out as no problem. Thanks
