Why does my nose remain blocked all the time?
Q: I have severe sinusitis. My nose remains blocked every time. The ENT specialist says that I have deviated nasal septum (DNS) and it should be removed by operation. I have undergone operation, but I still suffer from blocked nose. What is the remedy?
A:There are numerous causes for blocked nose apart from deviated nasal septum (DNS). It could be blocked due to polyps, enlarged turbinates, sinusitis, failed septal correction after septal surgery or any other mass in the nose. You need a thorough nasal examination by ENT doctor and if needed nasal endoscopy to know the cause and site of nasal blockage.
