I had Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and Septoplasy surgery 6 weeks ago?

I had FESS and Septoplasy surgery 6 weeks ago and Im still some headaches though they are not really bad. Last week and today I had a post nasal discharge which is black in colour. It was a bit alarming! What could that be? Is it possibly blood from the original operation?

Hi..
Yes, brownish black discharge can be due to old blood that might have accumulated during the surgery..
Also you should discuss with your doctor and get evaluated and he can prescribe saline nasal irrigation and decongestants..

Hope this helps..
