Hello,

There are two possibilities,one is that there was pre existing sinusitis,passage has cleared by removal of polyp but sinusitis remains,so treatment of sinusitis has to continue vigorously.

Second possibility is extensive removal of polyp may induce infection and later a mri may be needed to ascertain further course of action. I presume there is no drowsiness,nausea or vomiting.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. N. K. Misra
