Sinus Drainage Into Lungs
Physician Eval...: Often, your doctor can tell the difference by examining you, including listening to your lungs with a stethoscope while you breathe deeply. If your lungs are congested, there will be abnormal sounds over your lung fields. With sinus congestion, your lungs will sound normal (unless bronchospasm related to your sinuses is present. If so, wheezing will be heard!). ...Read more

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge (~ right side) in stomach and left lung. Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?
See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary, abdominal, or urinary symptoms. If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything. ...Read more
