1. Go ahead with your CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) Scan. It should be a plain scan with 1mm coronal, axial and sagittal cuts, preferably on a Multislice Scan Machine. Contrast should be used only if necessary.
2. Is your nasal blockage one sided or on both sides. Before asking for your scan, your doctor must have examined your nose. What were the clinical findings? If no polyps were actually seen, it might be a good idea to do a pre and post de-congestion scan using xylometazoline (Otrivin) nasal drops.
3. Polyps require surgery at some point in time. In India it would cost between 15,000 to 60,000 rupees depending on the type of room and hospital. This amount will not cover incidental expenses and extra cost in the event of complications.

have been suffering from nose blockage and shortness of breath since 18 months. One thing I observed is that only one nostril gets blocked and if I sleep on one side then the side which is at floor that side nostril gets blocked and when i turn over the other side gets blocked. Also whenever I through out mucus by coughing or any other means I feel better. Shortness of breath problem always there even my both nostrils are cliar. I had CT scan and doctor told me that I have Deviated Nasal Septum but that is from childhood and every other thing is clear. Allergist who performed skin test told me I have dust mite allergy and reactive Airway Decease . I have taken enough care to avoid dust mite . IgE level Stands at 300 while Lab range is 10-340. Also I have pain in my right ear only. Only a tablet of ambroxol hydrochloride gives me complete relief from shortness of breath and nose blockage. What should I do ? CT Scan reports WWW.WWWW.WW

I am 67 years old, measuring 173 cm and weighing 85kg. After the death of my wife 6 months ago, I got a medium level depression (which I am treating with a daily intake of 1mg vitamin B12). I went to Morocco for work to change my mind. After about 6 weeks I got the flu there. Two brilliant local doctors confirmed to me that I had to take immediately an antibiotic because I supposedly had a pneumonia. I did it and promptly lost about 12kg in about one week, for lack of food intake possibility due to a totally blocked colon and suddenly strong stomach cramps and breathing problems. I returned quickly to Sweden where the emergency Dr. detected immediately asthma generated by a virus. I have managed to get completely rid of the asthma in the lungs since then. Now for the last 6 weeks about, my nose suffers from a strange problem. The problem started with a very strong liquid (non salty tasting) mucus discharge, followed by a total nose blockade. I tried Otrivin and similar products and Claritine with almost no effect. When coming home my nose is usually ok for the first 30 minutes. Afterwards the nose starts plugging until a total block of both nostrils. No mucus is running. When I take the car to go to the nearest shopping mall, my two nostrils open up again slowly over a period of about 30 minutes and become totally normal again in the mall. Returning home, my problem starts again. What is my problem? I am thinking of a birch wood allergy, since 70% of my furniture is made of birch.
My husband, age 62, lifelong non-smoker, limited caffeine consumption (1 serving per day), and no ETOH, currently on treatment for HTN, GERD, hypercholesterolemia, and IBS. He had a negative colonoscopy 6 mos ago. A year ago he had a bovine aortic valve replacement and a single secondary CA bypass. Prior to the heart surgery he was very anemic. That resolved with oral iron. Now at his annual physical he has a normal H&H but very low ferritin (15). His mother had a coagulopathy and his sister has IHS. He was tested for IHS but the test was negative. I wonder if there are other tests that could be done (blood tests) re iron stores issues. Our PCP has just said he needs to go back to GI for a repeat colonoscopy. I think that a narrow look at a potentially wider issue. What do you think?
My fiancé was experiencing blood from his rectum and severe bloating and constipation. He had a colonoscopy they found a benign polyp and hemorrhoids. He had an upper GI endoscopy and was told his stomach isn t moving. Any suggestions? He isn t a diabetic. They recommended vitamins and milk of magnesia every day
Hi Dr Narasi, I am 74, For the past 4 months I am noticing I am getting more air coming out from my mouth and less and less from the rare.and the movement of bowel first start with burst of stool, My colonoscopy 3 years ago was normal. I would appreciate your comment thankd
Sometimes when I have a bowel movement, I get abdominal pain and then I get excess saliva and vomit. I have always had a problem with constipation. I had a colonoscopy and the Dr. said I did have diverticulitis. Why do I tend to vomit sometimes. I do not feel sick.
