I woke up 3 days ago with a headache, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I assumed it was just a regular cold, because after all it is the season. Starting last night a watery yellow liquid starting dripping out of my right nostril semi-regularly. A little bit of medical back ground for you; 3 years ago I under went a transsphenoidal surgery to remove a tumor from my pituitary gland. This caused me to develop acromegaly. The surgery was a complete success, but on 2 occasions, both while sick, I have developed this strange dripping. Is it just a phase of this cold-like sickness, or could it somehow be that after 3 years, the incision site of my surgery has been comprimized and is letting cerebral-spinal fluid drip? If you need any more information I would be glad to give it to you. As it is the holidays my normal doctors, and specialists are on vacation.View Thread
