Should I get surgery done?
I am suffering from this nose block and runny nose issue from almost last 13 years which had started with an infection and was unfortunately left untreated for 11 years. But after that I was treated and recently diagnosed with a small maxillary polyp on left side, DNS to right and inferior turbinates hypertrophy. One doctor here on Practo recommended surgery for DNS and Polyp. I have been for last 3 months on a Fluticasone-Azelastine Nasal spray and also got treated with meds many times in last 2 years. But unfortunately symptoms didn't really relieve much. And recently I am getting more exhausted and finding it difficult to breathe as my right nostril is almost always blocked. So I want to get surgery done from a reputed government hospital nearby. But should I really do it now or wait until the pandemic is over? Thank you.
