ENT Specialist 's  Response
1. Every case of DNS does not require surgery.
2. First take a 15 day trial with a combination of anti allergic + anti leukotriene and a steroid nasal spray along with steam inhalation daily, under medical supervision.
3. If the response is satisfactory, you will not require surgery. Continue the medicines under medical supervision.
4 Radio frequency ablation of nasal turbinates is an alternative procedure.
5. Septoplasty, SMR or nasal surgery for DNS is recommended when the above treatment does not lead to any improvement.
6. A plain CT PNS (Para Nasal Siniuses) on a multislice CT Scan machine is recommended before any nasal surgery, endoscopic or traditional.
7. You may share your CT images via a free file sharing site such as www.filesanywhere.com and post a link here.

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?
