Anything that creates a blockage of the intestinal tract. You may think of the intestinal tract (stomach, small bowel, large bowel) as somewhat akin to a garden hose.

Me 20. I don't hv nasal obstruction/headache bt on pns xray spur found on r. Side nose doc advised for septoplasty, also hv allergic rhinitis, wt shud I do?
See alllergist: These may be all related to allergy. Unless the spur is obstructing your passages permanently, surgery would not make much difference. Even if you have the surgery, your allergic problem would not go away. Get a 2nd opinion before you go for the surgery. If you have access to an allergist, go see one. In the meanwhile, make sure that you are aiming the nasal spray towards the side of the nose. ...Read more
Ent found deviated septum, nasal obstruction, damage from gerd. Needs to do endoscopic septoplasty. Scared. Risks? Any life threatening risks?
Not big risk : Septoplasty is correction of the deviated or crooked septum. The basic risks include bleeding, infection, not getting a satisfactory correction of deviation, a septal perforation(hole), changes in smell/ taste temporarily. No life threatening risks from surgery. Most ENT doctors do 100's of these a year. Quite common and routine procedure. ...Read more

See your doctor: This could be merely a common cold with the symptoms you are describing. Saline nose drops and suctioning gently with upright positioning and steamy baths may help to weather this illness.

Mucoperiosteal thickening of septum and turbinates producing near occlusion of nasal cavity CT reading. . What does this mean?
Depends: Depends on the severity. Thickening of the septum lining and turbinate hypertrophy may be seen commonly in any condition that causes 'rhinitis' such as allergies or infection.

My daughter, 5 months old, has nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Is it recommended to "massage" her nose? In what age surgical intervention is needed?
General rules: Tear sac compression uses the tip of a finger, rolled from the nose down over the inner corner of the eye. As the kids head grows, the tear duct size increases and at some point debris blocking the duct is pushed out of the way and drainage improves. If the kid is getting constant lid infections or approaches 9 mo without improvement, I sent them to my local eye docs for probing under anesthesia. ...Read more
Hi dr. My husband had a bowel obstruction and had a nose tube, till 11 nov. Is it normal, that he still has stomach cramps and feel discomfortable?
Yes: Bowel obstructions are commonly caused by scar tissue from prior abdominal surgery. Many times an acute episode will resolve with nasogastric tube placement for a few days-until the patient starts passing gas or bowel movements resume. Can certainly have recurrent episodes. Sometimes it requires surgery to break up the scar tissue if the GI tract does not open up. ...Read more

What is this big extremely painful bump inside my nasal ala? I've had over a week n very painful.it bleeds and has puss aswell.what can I do? Thanks
Very well!: Sometimes a breathing tube needs to be placed through the nose when surgery is done on the jaw or facial bones, for example. The tube is gently introduced through the nose down into the windpipe (trachea) to help the pt breathe during surgery. It works the same way as a tube put in via the mouth to provide an airway for a pt under anesthesia. ...Read more
Germs you carry: The nasal membranes are a luxurious environment for germs to grow and end up on your fingers where they are spread to the environment. Screening nasal swabs is one way to find a source for staph or other germ that may not infect the carrier but might cause problems with the rest of their family. ...Read more
Sometimes: In certain patients when nasal obstruction leads to mouth breathing and mouth breathing leads to snoring the nasal strips can be helpful. The only way to know is for you to try them. Make sure you wear them a little lower than the nasal strip people recommend. Where they tell you to wear it is too high — wear a little lower on your nose you will have more success. ...Read more
Tube in nose : The endotracheal tube is put in through the nose instead of through the mouth. This is done in cases where the surgery being performed would be hindered by having a tube in the mouth. The anesthesiologist decongests the nose vigorously and uses a smaller tube to avoid trauma and bleeding. ...Read more
