Worried about cold messing up recent sinus surgery
 
I just had sinus surgery in March and now I've had a cold for the last week. I've had sinus congestion and what feels like inflamed nasal passages that I can't get rid of. What worries me is most of the swelling is on the side I had surgery on. Do I need to call my ENT? I can't take decongestants and Astepro and Nasonex aren't working anymore. Nasal rinses only work temporarily.

Re: Worried about cold messing up recent sinus surgery
 
Since your surgery was in March you don't have much to worry about. Your sinuses are still probably slightly inflamed but things should return to normal when the cold passes - keep up the irrigation until the cold clears up for sure.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say that Astepro and Nasonex aren't working anymore. Do you mean they're not helping with the cold or they're not helping at all? If they're not helping at all you should probably talk to your doctor.
