still stuffed up after sinus surgery

I had a sinus infection for months so I had balloon sinuplasty on 3 of my sinuses and turbinate reduction. I have improved some. No cough, minimal runny nose. More space for the stuffiness. One nostril is always stuffed up. It has been 2 months since my surgery. All packing is out.

I do have allergies, but I am on shots. I generally do not have allergies this time of year. Also until the last couple of days I was still getting blood and some discolored mucus from my nose. Could this be another sinus infection? Possibly to a different cavity?

What other than allergies or another sinus infection could be  making me stuffed up? I have been permanently stuffed up since last summer. I don't know what to do. I use omnaris and a nasal and oral anti-histamine.

I have increased my allergy shots to weekly. I have been going for 5 years now. I don't think its allergies.
