Having a chronic sinusitis problem.

I have a chronic sinusitis problem I had one surgery done about 4 years ago there was relief for some time...but again this problem has resurfaced it was rhinoplasty + something curvature( i dont remember the exact name) they took out a small bone in surgery and cleared the air passage of my nostrils diagnosis was that, my nose is blocked and I should go for a surgery oh I am saying "chronic" because it has continued for a long time . Chronic means "Continuous" as of now I frequently get cold and running nose problem there is a thick green discharge many a times not only in the morning but in other time of day also yes i find myself very much sensitive to cold in the morning it is solid so i have to forcefully discharge it out

thats septoplasty If this was the surgery the diagnosis would be like DNS pain on cheeks is assosciated with maxillary sinusitis so do you find more problem in winters I feel you have the chronic sinusitis problem But the cause should be found out the previous doctor operated on septoplasty because you have got a deviated nasal septum which is a common cause of the chronic sinusitis

I would suggest you to see an ENT specialist to get a procedure done called the sinusoscopy called FESS he sees into the sinus and determine what to be done next IF you would like one of our doctors to call you and help you

You need to undergo a Plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) on a high resolution CT Scan machine to figure out the present condition of your nose and sinuses as a result of your disease and previous surgeries.

You need to consider a trial of medical therapy before considering additional surgery to avoid an Empty Nose Syndrome.

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for this opportunity. I am a 50 year old female from Hungary and I have had unilateral, right eye ptosis (4-5 mm) for about 10 years. I also feel pain, more like pressure, on the right eye and recently light pain around my right ear, sometimes pain behind my right cheek. I don’t have double vision, tearing, edema, discharge, swelling of the right eye. My right nostril is obstructed very often, the left one is quite all right. The ophtalmologist says my vision is ok but I feel that I have a restriction of my right eye movement. I feel that this is a serious problem, my right eye seems a little bit smaller, seems older (the upper lid is deepened, the eyeball is a little sunken) and because of that, my face got distorted. I have old photographs, there wasn’t any asymmetry. I’ve seen doctors in 2001 (when it started), in 2005, and in 2010-2011. I always started with an otolaryngologist because I felt pain behind the cheeks and my right eye and I thought that it might be sinusitis. The otolaryngologist sent me to the opthalmologist and then to the neurologist. In 2010 (after a cold) a CT of the face was made. In 2001 an MRI of the head was done and the radiologist found brain lesions. In 2011 the MRI of the head was repeated and they found that there is no progression of the lesions. Cancer, MS and MG and was ruled out. Pain and nose obstruction get worse when I sleep on my right side. Then I usually wake up. In 2011 I was prescribed antibioticts, after taking them it has got better. Both otolaryngologist and the ophtalmologist said that this is a neurological problem. But the neurologist can’t find anything which explains the ptosis and the pain. I have a feeling that the cause of my eye problem is a chronic sinus infection, but I am not a doctor. If you have an idea please let me know. Sincerely, M.

I have just returned home after having septoplasty/rhinoplasty surgery. I am a 49 year old woman weighing 158 lbs in excellent health with no pre-surgery complications. My situation is that immediately upon awaking in the recovery area, I experienced burning and stinging in my nostrils, sore throat and pain in the chest. The sore throat and chest pain are the result of the breathing tube (it was a 4 hour surgery) and I was told by the nurse on duty that the nasal burning was due to the nasal sprays that were administered while I was under anesthesia. My question is, how long will it be before this burning subsides? This is actually the worst part of my experience thus far. I did have nasal packing performed which is being removed in two days - could the burning be related to this? I am currently taking Percocet for pain which is working well for the actual pain of the rhinoplasty, but it hardly touches the burning. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have had two rhinoplasty surgeries and I fear I need another one. I am 65 years old and the last one I had was about 8 years ago. I am having trouble breathing and fear that it is collapsing again. I don't know how to find a good doctor near where I live.

I have been experiencing a foul smell inside my nose for 7 months now. at first i thought i got it from swimming during summer and maybe i got a bacteria in the water that infected my implant. I had a rhinoplasty 10 years ago and I thought my nose may had been infected so I have the implant removed. I had 3 more surgeries because of the non-healing lesion that my doctor and I thought might be an infection again. the problem is, i do not have implant now and I still have that foul smell once in a while. I'm drained already thinking what remedy would help me so I can have my nose done again but I cannot proceed on that unless I the foul smell is gone. I really need help. What do you think is happening to me? what shall I do? Have I gotten some bacteria that causes my nose to emit foul smell? I have been treated with antibiotics but it doesn't help at all. What drug should I take and what is really causing the foul smell?
