I had a rivision rynoplasty 10 days ago and now am having severe post-nasal drip. I had the original surgery 20 years ago to stop my post-nasal drip and chronic sinusidus and have not had a problem since then. I had the recent surgery to get rid of cartiledge that had accumulated at the tip since the last surgery. Is it normal to have post-nasal drip after surgery or could my old fix have been undone?
I am so glad to finally find someone that has the same problem as I do. I always had post nasal drip but it wasn't severe until I had nasal surgery for sleep apnea. It was so severe that I was gulping every 3 seconds to get the drainage down. I was being tortured and my Dr. kept giving me antihistimines that made it worse. I was so miserable that I had decided that if a Dr. couldn't find a way to stop the drainage I was going to end my life. Thankfully I went to an allergist and was put on allergy shots and it slowed it down tremendously. I guess the drainage I always had before that wasn't really bothersome was some type of allergy problem and when they removed whatever they removed it opened the flood gate. I would run to an allergist!
