Maybe : This all depends on what you had done, why you had it and what is the condition of your sinuses now. It will be worthwhile to get back into your ENT's office for re-evaluation

Hello. Were you told that you had intranasal polyps? If so, a recurrence of the nasal polyps may be responsible for your list sense of smell. I agree, see your ENT doctor for a detailed nasal examination.
