Septoplasty & turbinectomy 4mths ago. Cleared nose but now getting thick, clear mucus. Allergy tests negative-Any allergies that mightn't show on test?

I : I understand your concerns, and I am sorry you have had to go through such a lengthy illness. Patients without spleens are at risk for worsening infections. Patients who are asplenic are usually advised to get Pneumovax and other immunizations so your doctor has probably advised that in the past. If your symptoms are worsening, then it would be reasonable to discuss your treatment again with your doctor. The medications you are on sound appropriate, and it is good that you are on nasal steroids as well. I hope your symptoms improve soon. ...Read more

This is evidence: Of a disturbed action of what is known as the nasal cycle. This is actually controlled by the lower brain and the commonest cause in my experience is poor diet. That may sound weird but the lower brain is in charge of our ability to adapt to environmental change including the light/dark cycle. ...Read more
