    Strange yellow liquid dripping from right nostril

    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.

    Unfortunately, there is really no way for me to know if you are leaking cerebral-spinal fluid or not....a brief posting is not the same as having a hands-on examination and a review of your medical records. I know this is a holiday weekend, but there is always somone ON CALL at your doctor's office, so it would be wise to initiate a all for patient-specific advice.
