Brief Answer:
In my opinion , Aloe vera juice will have negligible effect on nasal sinus

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

You should stop drinking aloe Vera juice from today .

Aloe vera juice might affect blood sugar levels and could interfere with blood sugar control in diabetic patient during and after surgery. Besides it effect on blood sugar and other organs it has no significant effect on nasal sinus surgery.

Keep the anaesthetist informed about drinking aloe Vera juice.

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
