I'd like to ask someone please what can my son do? He had a turbinate reduction only because the surgeon suggested it along with a septoplasty.
It seems he had a complication he wasn't made aware of, and that was infection and the bone dying for four months. He washed his nose to try and rid it of the stink.
Another surgeon diagnosed that it was naked, exposed, unhealed bone with infection and he had to undergo more surgery.
Now, four weeks later, after three weeks on penicillin and having stopped four days ago, the smell is back and it's blocked.
Please, can anyone help me to help him? His surgeon doesn't get back until next week. My son blew out a green plug shaped bung a few days ago too, and he has a throbbing painful big toe, which he thinks is spreading because of the infection.
He won't see a doctor but asks me to tell him he'll be all right. I'm at my wits' end. Please help.
