Avatar f tn Occasionally throughtout the day i am having a green discharge from my nose very little.Does anybody know if a bad smell from nose two weeks after surgery is normal? Also do you know if night sweats are a part of the healing process?
Avatar n tn ANyone considering nose surgery please please contact me and put nose surgery in the subject..i've had three and i know pretty much all you need to know..and for starters i would never of have the first septum one if i could go back,i'd stay the way i was..
Avatar m tn Dear MJ, One of the first questions I like to ask is did the patient have an implant placed in the bridge of the nose? If the implant is swelling up episodically, then there might be possible signs of an early infection or rejection. I would recommend that you go see the physician who performed the procedure and ask him these questions. Hope this helps and if there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know. Dr. Nassif Paul Nassif, M.D.
Avatar f tn Smell in nose after sinus surgery is common, it is part of healing, make sure you keep rinsing. I use a neilmed bottle and flush three times daily. It has been 9 days after the surgery and it (the smell) started the 5th day. It went away for a bit but now it is back with a vengange. My doctor told me to keep rinsing, keep carefully blowing my nose, finish the anti biotics.
Avatar f tn bout the size of a grape doing surgery via nose Has anyone had complications afterwards.
Avatar f tn I had a 24hr urine free cortisol test that was double the reference range, but it was 3 weeks after abdominal surgery and none of the doctors can say whether or not surgery would contribute to higher cortisol--I'm certain it does. I have had only one dexamethasone suppression test, immediately following the 24hr UFC, that I did suppressed below lab reference, but I did not suppress to the level that would 100% rule out the mass producing cortisol.
Avatar m tn My nose of course was blocked because of the packing but other than that I felt really good, tired but good. A couple of weeks after my surgery I started to develop a sinus infection, there was this smell, a smell that I could only associate with getting sinus infections while suffering from Chronic Sinusitis. I was happy because a couple days after this cold/sinus infection, whatever it was started, I was due for my follow up appointment at the hospital.
Avatar n tn About a month ago, I had endoscopic sinus surgery, which removed a fungal infection. Since then, my nose has felt clear - in fact, it's strange how easily I'm now able to breathe through both nostrils. My problem is that I have been having severe insomnia every night since the surgery. I have difficulty falling asleep (usually takes an hour), and then wake up early, between 3 AM and 5 AM. I also have been more anxious, but it's hard to tell if that's related to the insomnia problem.
Avatar n tn From all my research fluid leaking is the major sympton. It can happen from surgery like you, after a severe sinus infection like me or spontaneous. One other test you can mention is a cisternogram, but find someone complety trained in this field. I did go as I had mentioned for the cisternogram twice I would possibly do it again if it would help.

429574 tn?1203805901 I have always had very bad allergies and chronic sinus infections. I got really sick after the surgery (body aches, chills, numbness in hands) and my Doctor told me I probably caught something while my body was week from the surgery. I've had one follow up appointment with the next one scheduled for the end of February. My nose has not stopped running since the surgery. It's still tinged with red but is mostly green now and i swear that i smell something bad all the time.
894112 tn?1241557704 I had a broken nose that i had to have surgery for. A few days after my surgery I hit my nose on the head board of my bed. It has been about 3 weeks since and I and in so much pain and there is a bump on the out side of my nose on the left side. Does any one know what is going on?
Avatar n tn This past summer I had my tonsils taken out and my turbonites shrank due to always getting sinus infections and swelling of my tonsils and lymph nodes in the front of my throat. After the surgery my nose got a severe infection and 11 months later is still going through infection. While my throat hasn't gotten sore at all, I am also still noticing a continous swelling of my frontal nodes. Sometimes it feels as if someone is squeezing my throat.
Avatar n tn I have gone to three doctors and one of which told me to get a nose job and the second told me he wouldn't reculture it again and the last ENT doctor did sinus surgery on me and it is week 10 after surgery and the infection was back in two weeks and my cartilage is collapsed now so I can't breath out of the left side of my nose. Now I am seeing yet another ENT doctor. When will this end? No one can get rid of it.
Avatar n tn You mentioned your problem doesnt let you get much sleep is it because the turbinates are swelling because that is what is happening to me last year i had some granulate tissue that didnt heal after adnoid surgery so then they cut out the granulated tissue and now for over a year my turbs have been swelling .
Avatar f tn Not to detract from your situation though.. I once had a too runny nose also - then had surgery to staighten a deviated septum and open the nose some without removing turbinates. I was good for a few years, then started getting beat-up by the dryness condition. -But the point is I know where you're at, and it is annoying. In my present condition, I see some improvement when eating - apparently because the salivary glands are stimulated and the nose-throat are better moisturized.
173939 tn?1333221450 When is the proper time for a toddler or preschooler or any age of a child to be able to blow their nose? I know there are these tricks to teach them "to blow out a candle" with their nose to learn how to do it, rather around age 2 I thought... but my six-year-old STILL refuses to even try. I don`t want him to be a gross adult. This is not normal, is it?
Avatar m tn from the e-collar she wore after surgery. The skin on the front of her neck had worn raw and had a Staph infection. They shaved that spot and treated it and sent me home with antibiotics and Benedryl for the itching. This morning, the old girl is already acting more like herself. Thanks again for your comments.
3135902 tn?1342672657 The person who was suppose to help me after surgery has the flu, and I live with my Grandpa who's a big help, but he can't help with all of it ya know? I went in with a prolactinoma and came out with a "shocked" pituitary glad -now NOT producing cortisol. Doc said it could just be temporary. They sent me home with hydrocortisone and that stuff will make you hyper! Overall I feel very, very tired. The thought of moving just annoys me (but I am getting up and sitting or walking some.
Avatar f tn By living in the nose, I am referring to nasal mites or to a possible fungal infection? Dogs can develop a fungal infection in their nose called aspergillosis that can cause bilateral nosebleeds. You said that your dog has Cushings. Cushings disease can cause high blood pressure and subsequently be the cause of nosebleeds, so it's not too surprising that she had a nosebleed being a Cushingoid dog.
Avatar m tn In the beginning I used to smoke and after smoke, smell is that strong other persons can smell in the room. Its so strong. I was not sure about that in the beginning, went to see Dentist and then Family doctor. I disgonose with Sinusis. So I think that it comes from Nose. My sinusus does not give me pain or anything. Take antibiotic during these days feels ok but then again same problem. If I eat anything that have a Bad odour or something then same smells you can feel in the room.
Avatar m tn I too was convinced that the smell was coming from my nose. Because of this, i ended up at an ENT, who convinced me I needed surgery on my sinuses & tonsils. Well, after having tonsils\adenoids removed, upper gi, lower colon splenoid or something done, and all kinds of other medical test ran. The culprit turned out to be a crown on the lower left molar tooth. The tooth up under the crown had split in half, and the damn thing became infected or something.
Avatar f tn Hi Annie, (sorry if this in here twice; it doesn't show the first time I wrote something) I am sorry you are having headaches. I did too. I woke up in severe pain and mostly was "knocked out" on pain medications as much as possible in the hospital. They could not get my pain under control in the ICU. I had very severe crowding at the magnum foramen and was losing my ability to walk prior to surgery. I was considered an "urgent" case. And also a rare case.
