Re: Bad Tasting Mucus & Bad Smell after Sinus Surgery

It's not normal to have foul smelling discharge 3 1/2 weeks after sinus surgery. Has your ENT been performing the recommended debriding (removal of scabs to prevent scarring) and are you irrigating to remove excess mucus and help soothe the inflammation?

Most of the time people seem to feel crummy for about a week after sinus surgery but 3 1/2 weeks is a long time to not be noticing significant improvement.
