    Yellow water drainage
    An_251307 posted:
    I had major sinus surgery on Feb. 4,2013, after a few weeks of recovery and feeling better I had experienced this odd yellow fluid come out of my nose. Alarmed I called my ENT, I should add I had a phantom smell I could never figure out where it was coming from. My ENT gave me a nasal rinse that has already started working in just a day. It is a saline rinse injected with a mild steroid and an antibiotic. I use an oral siringe twice a day 10mil. So far works great.
