I have had chronic post nasal drip ever since I had surgery for sleep apnea that included removal of my uvula. Have tried all over the counter antihists. and other Rx treatments. Nothing really works. This is really annoying and distracting.
Have been taking an antireflux med for reflux of the larynx and a streroidal nasal spray that gives me about 30 minutes of relief.
Does anyone have anything close to this or could you point me to some help? Thx. for anything. View Thread
Dr. Moser ... thanks again. I have been to several docs, including docs at MUSC (Charleston), MCG (Augusta, GA). I am told repeatedly that I have reflux of the larynx and somehow that causes all these mucus in my nose and mouth. I take Dexilant for the reflux and Mometasone spray for the congestion. The Momet. gives me very short term relief. I was told by a second doctor that the surgery was done very well, so I don't think there is inflammation. I DID read somewhere that uvula removal can cause post nasal drip, but not indication of how to get rid of it.View Thread
Thanks, Dr. Moser, for responding. I am pretty sure I tried Astelin a long time ago. I DID not have a CT scan beforehand. I had NEVER EVER had any sinus problems before the surgery. I have had a CT scan and upper GI test recently. Nothing was found. I am always told I have silent reflux....even though I take Dexilant (reflux) and Mometesone spray, I almost constantly have drainage in my throat and nose. It MUST be related to the uvula being removed.....wish the doc had warned me of this beforehand. Surely there are others who are dealing with this .I have even considered finding a doc who would reconstruct my uvula? Does that sound crazy?View Thread
