From the information you conveyed, the existence of a history of ENT examinations and surgeries that you underwent before, in general, it can be seen the possible causes of the complaints you convey, either by physical examination, X-rays, or CT scans that you have previously undergone. Because these examinations can determine the general condition of the nasal cavity and surrounding organs.
The operation of the sinuses, konka, and septum is a measure of surgery to be done based on the results of existing examinations, and to eliminate or reduce your complaints. However, if the operation does not produce a positive result for your complaint, it is necessary to know other possible causes, such as:
1. allergy, allergy testing will help determine the cause
2. vasomotor rhinitis, affected by changes in the blood vessels in your nasal cavity
3. physical exhaustion
4. smoking or exposure to excess pollution
5. the habit of sleeping late at night
What can be done next is to consult your ENT doctor again to discuss the possible causes of the complaint you feel. You can ask for a second opinion to the ENT doctor in a major hospital in your city. And if you don't expect surgery, then you can also tell the doctor who treats you not to do surgery, unless the cause has been confirmed so that your complaints will be reduced or gone. So that to make sure you can recover or not, it can only be confirmed by the doctor who treated you with the results of the examination.
What you can do next to help reduce the severity of your current complaint are:
1. Avoid smoking, alcohol or anything that affects your health
2. Do it regularly, with regular exercise, it is hoped that after 2 months these complaints can be reduced
3. Avoid sleeping late
4. avoid or limit consumption of light foods, spicy, foods containing excess salt and MSG
5. enough water
6. Use a nose mask
7. If cold temperatures increase this complaint, then limit the use of air conditioners
That's the info we can convey, also read vasomotor rhinitis.
