Had sinus surgery 3 months ago because of a bacterial infection in nose,opened up and cleaned my nose out. Now for the past week have had sinus drainage in throat feels like swollen glands then getting chest pains saw ent he said nose looked good no swelling no more infection not sure what this problem is.........
Understanding your concern. As per your query you have sinus drainage . Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to may reasons colds ,flu , allergies and deviated septum . Sometimes such type of symptoms can also occur due to acid rellux also . I would suggest you to eat light and non spicy , eat small meals frequently , take antacid after every meal and take antacid after every meal . Also do warm saline gargles and take steam thrice a day to relieve the congestion . If condition doesnt get well then consult ENT specialist again . Doctor may order CT scan , allergy test and blood test . Doctor may prescribe antibiotics ( amoxicillin or penicillin ) because sometimes residual infection remain even after surgery . Doctor may also refer you to gastroenterologist iin case of acid reflux .
Hope your concern has been resolved.
Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes, Dr. Harry Maheshwari
