I have previously had an operation done to my sinus and deviation but I still have trouble breathing along with a runny blocked nose, could it be that I need another surgery?Feb 28, 2013

Persistent nasal obstruction post surgery may be due to continued obstruction from previous nasal septal deviation, or recurrence of nasal polyps, if that was the cause of obstruction and surgery in the first place. In these cases it is likely that you will need redo surgery depending on severity of your symptoms. There are, however, other causes for nasal obstruction that are non-surgical such as Allergies. Proper evaluation along with nasal endoscopy will answer your question.
