My nasal CT Scan reports say:
I have rebound congestion in my left nostril. I do not understand my report. Please say a note about this. I am currently on antihistamines and nasal spray (stopped due to rebound congestion) using steam. The left nostril is blocked.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Let me help you understand your report point by point.
The CT (computed tomography) scan findings suggest you have a deviated nasal septum (which may be causing the nose block) and mild sinus infection. Nasal drops like Xylometazoline should not be used continuously for more than seven days as it causes rebound congestion. We substitute that with normal saline nasal drops that can be used over a long time. Antihistaminics and steam do help. If optimum medical treatment fails to relieve symptoms, patients are advised surgery (called septoplasty) involving straightening the midline partition. Your ENT specialist can help you in making an informed decision regarding the same.
