  • Nasal cauterisation issues

    Yesterday I had nasal cautery for recurrent nosebleeds. I wasn't told about the ache/pain I would get afterwards in my teeth and jawbone, nor about the continous dripping from my nostril. It's still there today over 24 hours later. I think it was the anaesthetic that has caused this by …

  • Constant loss of smell and fatigue for 2 years.

    I had my first nose surgery about 3 years ago. I had a deviated septum and enlarged turbinate and therefore had a septoplasty. This procedure was done through the public system. After the surgery I followed the correct recovery procedures (nasal douche etc.) only to find that 6 months later it had …

  • Mucus plug

    For years I’ve suffered with a post nasal drip and build up of mucous at the back of my nose! When I get a cold it gets 10x worse. The mucus builds up to the point that it feels like it moves around and blocks my nasal passages so I can’t breath. Blowing normally does nothing to help. Eventually it …

  • Nasal Cauterisation

    It`s no use going to the emergency room at our local hospital because, if the nose isn`t bleeding, they won`t touch it so you sit there like a lemon for 3-4 hours holding a bowl. Having arrived by taxi as driving is impossible, how many taxi drivers would refuse to pick you up when your nose is …

  • Can you have post nasal drip but with dry nose?

    I always thought that post nasal drip is caused by excessive mucus buildup in your nose, that drip down your throat. However, in my case I have constant gluey mucus stuck at my nasopharynx, behind the soft palate where my nose meets my throat. So I believe it’s post nasal drip since it’s at …
