Left Headache After Sinusitis Surgery?
Hello 5 days ago I finished sinusitis surgery. But why is it only now that pain appears in the left head of the front and back? And now I have a cough that causes my body and eyes to heat up! How do you overcome this?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sinus cavity, which is an air-filled cavity located behind the nose, forehead, and cheeks, can become inflamed if the outlet is blocked. In the medical realm, this condition is called sinusitis. The causes of this condition can be many, ranging from infections (often due to viruses), nasal polyps, nasal septal deviation, allergies, to other diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), HIV, and so on. This condition can cause sufferers to experience nasal congestion, disturbances of smell and taste, often smell a foul odor in his nose, headaches, facial pain, nasal noise, mucus swallowed to the throat (post nasal drip), and various other complaints. If this condition continues to recur for weeks (at least 12 weeks, or also called chronic sinusitis), then the doctor can provide more invasive treatment, for example surgery, can be with the endoscopic method or balloon synuplasty.
After sinusitis surgery, sufferers may experience signs of inflammation of the nasal cavity, such as nasal congestion, olfactory disorders, dizziness, headaches, phlegm throat, and so on. This condition usually occurs within 1 to 7 days after surgery. With good handling and control after surgery, including by taking drugs that doctors give post-surgery, often these complaints will improve within a few days. Try to do the following steps:
Take post-operative medicine according to doctor's advice. Get plenty of rest, raise your head while sleeping, for example by using more pillows Don't rub excessive nose Don't blow air too hard through the nose Compress the eyes that feel hot with cucumber slices or cold water Drink more water lots and eat healthy food every day Don't smoke Stay away from a smoky, polluted, or too cold environment. However, if after the doctor's medication runs out your complaints still haven't improved, we suggest you go back to the doctor or ENT specialist who operated on you. It is feared, your complaint indicates a secondary infection in the surgical scar or other complications that require special treatment from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
