Continual Discharge From The Nose After Sinusitis Surgery?
The smell that smells and continues to come out of my nose after sinus surgery is the effect of post surgery or something
Hello Mass Hendi,
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus and nasal cavities. In the sinusitis condition there is a disruption in secretion / fluid production, disruption of the ciliary function (for cleaning fluid), and disruption of fluid flow due to blockage. Common symptoms of sinusitis in adults are a feeling of nasal congestion or a runny nose, disruption to smell, fullness or pain in the face (cheeks, forehead). Can also be accompanied by symptoms of persistent cough, taste like swallowing runny nose, fever, discoloration of snot, bad breath.
The diagnosis of sinusitis is based on clinical symptoms and physical examination, and investigations such as x-rays and CT-scans. Management of sinusitis cases is using drugs, nasal washing, and also surgical therapy. Risks of sinus surgery are bleeding, infection, vision problems, decreased ability to breathe, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid. After surgery, blood from the nose / mouth can be released during the first week, where the volume of blood is minimal and will decrease. When the function of sinus fluid flow has returned to normal, thick fluid can also come out of the nose. The ability to smell usually returns to normal after 2-3 weeks. Patients are usually advised not to blow their nose too tightly during the first week. If complaints of fever, severe headaches, vision problems, bleeding or increased fluid coming out of the nose, you should consult your ENT specialist.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
