In brief: Saline irrigation

Daily or more can help liquefy and mobilize the thick secretions.
Your sinus surgeon may have instructions and suggestions as well at the office.

In brief: Allergies? smoker?

Do you have allergies (pollen, molds, dust mites)? Do you smoke or are you exposed to smoke? Do you work around chemicals? Any of these may cause nasal/sinus congestion.
See fp/allergist/ent to determine cause. Otc decongestant may help until more definitive treatment is prescribed.
