Yellow nasal discharge post ESS
Post Covid I was having severe sinusitis which was not getting cured with medication. I have undergone Septoplasty, Bilateral Inferior Turbinectomy with bilateral FESS on 17th July Even after nearly 2 weeks of surgery I am getting bright yellow nasal discharge from left nose (mostly watery and sometime thick many times a day) which used to remain block before surgery. Is this yellow discharge normal post surgery common or is it a sign that infection is still there. I have taken antibiotic for 5 days post surgery and is continuing to take Maxstine in morning and Odiment in evening as per Dr advice. I am also doing nasal wash as per Dr advice. Kindly suggest what I should do further.

Discharge post nasal surgery is quite common, the sinuses heal by releasing exudates you may even see some blood stains don’t let that bother you, having said that if you experience headaches or fever please consult with the operating surgeon. Continue regular nasal wash to help with the healing process
