I am a 20 year old male. Had my septoplasty about seven months ago and still suffer from congestion. After a surgery for about 3 months I felt great but now It seems mucus is building up and it's blocking my nose. Sometimes it opens up like there's no mucus and sometimes I can breathe but I cannot smell from my nose. I'm really confused can anyone help?

Congestion after septoplasty
Hello, and sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing following your procedure. An exam would really be necessary to provide you with the best advice. I would recommend seeing a board certified ENT to help determine the cause of your problem. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
Have a question? Ask a doctor
- It looks like you may have allergic issues in addition to a deviated septum
- Sometimes, something surgical can be done, other times, a nasal spray like nasonex works really well for problems like this
- The best thing to do it go in for an exam so we can see exactly why you are having these symptoms
