See your ENT: Your symptoms are possibly related to the structural changes that occurred from the surgery that may be allowing more access of allergens into the sinuses. You may also be having an additional rebound effect from the nasal spray. Please consider seeing your ENT physician for confirmation of the reason for the problem.
