Brief Answer:
Better to get done endoscopic examination of sinuses.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of chronic sinusitis is more..
So I advice to consult ENT doctor and get done
1. Clinical examination of nose
2. Endoscopic examination of sinuses
3. CT scan of paranasal sinuses.
You may need antibiotics and antifungal drugs.

I have never had CT scan or endoscopic scan on sinuses. The phlem is sometimes in green chunks and at times I can feel the drainage into my throat. Is that what is causing my hoariness and laryngitis?
