I had nasal surgery in March for severe sinusitis and deviated septum. I am having terrible thick mucks/crust either slide down my throat or with lots of blowing go into my nose. I usually get a terrible smell a few days before this occurres. This happens about every three weeks. I have seen my ENT several times and he does debri removal. This last time I asked when this would stop and he said it won't because my sinus's don't work properly. I feel there is something wrong.
Finding out the cause/solution might be a process. If you feel unsure about the current recommendations then by all means seek a second opinion from a qualified ENT surgeon. It might reaffirm your doctor's opinion or may offer another potential solution. Good luck!
