What do I do about nasal congestion after a septoplasty?

Post operative nose: The answer depends how long it's been since your surgery. If its the first week then oral steroids may help. Sudafed can also be effective. If its been more like a month then nasal steroid sprays like Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase could help. If its been longer, it's possible your surgery was ineffective. Wait at least 9 months and consider a revision if the situation has not improved. Best of luck.

What medication would be ok to take for nasal congestion while on 13mcg tirosint?

What medication would be ok to take for nasal congestion while on 13mcg tirosint?

Treat your allergy: The dose of thyroid medication you are on does not limit medications for your nose. Start with irrigating your nose with saline. If your nose is acutely congested, you can use a nasal decongestant such as oxymetazloline (Afrin) for 3-4 days. You need to use a nasal steroid for the long haul. OTC Nasacort (triamcinolone) is available, all others are by prescription. Again, no nasal decongestant beyond 4-5 days.

If I am sick and have nasal congestion, will this worsen when I fly because of the altitude?

Ears not nose: The problem you are more likely to have is with your ears. They won't be able to 'pop' to react to the pressure changes if the nose is very congested. Consult with your doctor or an ENT to see if using a decongestant might help you with the flight. Or, postpone the flight so that you aren't a risk to both yourself and others.

I'm experiencing nasal congestion every morning. Is it Alergy? Fyi I don't have any alergic history.

You don't have to: Have history of allergies to develop an allergic disease. This morning congestion can be a symptom of allergy or rather chronic inflammation of your upper airways, whether due to allergies or not. The environment plays a role, like whether you have pets, feather pillows, carpets, you smoke or around smokers, etc. Saline nasal washes used often would help for now till you see an ENT or an allergist
