Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

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
