I gather that you had allergic rhinitis with polyposis.
Your nasal mucosa gets congested and polps occur bcoz of allergy and air flow to the olfactory area is lost which decreases smell sensation though breathing is normal or compromised.
Do consult ENT Specialist and Immunologist for allergic treatment

Hi your history is totally neurogenic. loss of ability to smell has to be assessed for cause and severity... kindly consult neurologist and get treated...
