Hello, I want to ask, I finished my polyp and sinus surgery on March 5, 2019, and since after the surgery until today I can’t smell anything, is this normal? If so, how long will this normally last? If not, what should I do, because my corona is busy I avoid visiting the hospital for a while. Please enlighten me.

1 Answer:

Hi Amalia, thanks for asking.


Loss of smell or anosmia is normal after a sinus surgery / operation. This occurs due to inflammation that occurs after surgery. But you don't need to worry, usually your olfactory function will return to normal within 2-3 weeks after surgery. Therefore, if it lasts long enough, immediately consult your doctor.


For now a nutritious and balanced diet, plenty of drinking water, and enough rest you can do to speed up your post-operative recovery.


Hopefully that helps.
