hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are having acid peptic disease and reflux esophagitis..
before going for DNS surgery, try antacids like proton pump inhibitors and prokinetic drugs like itopride..
see your gastroenterologist if it doesnot improve, get endoscopy done and go according to the doctor..
DNS problem is a different set of problem, see your ENT surgeon lateron..
mean while eat less spicy food, small and frequent meals, stop alcohol/smoking..
all the very best.

Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Suman Kumar's  Response
THE SURGERY IS DONE TO PERFORM CORRECTION OF NASal passages so that the obstruction is cleared as there are many factors in this.IF YOUR MAIN FACOR IS ALLERGIC SURGERY MAY NOT HAV E MUCH EFFECT
if you have no major block controllinG the nasal secretions and keeping the size of all turbinates i nose by precautions can help you
as these are hypertrohied due to reular exposure to dust in indis
to prevent size increase of turbinates and exposure to allergens apply neomycin h ointment in nose bd for 6 months to prevent allergen from touching nasal mucosa
put sea water 2 drops at night in each nose to drain mucus and clear nose and throat
avoid medicines which can increase mucus secretions in nose and sinuses
take antiallergic sos for blockage and irritation
you can try for 6 months
