I too have NPC and did radiation twice once in 2003 & in 2004 when it came back, but did not have any problems with drainage. I did have a lot of infections in the Nasal passage and was having to take a lot of antibiotic for it. Check and see is any of the medication you are taking could be causing the infection, I found that after I stopped taking one of the medicines that my infections went away. As soon as I started the medication again the infections came back, I ask the doctor about it and he told me that the medication had nothing to do with my infection. I have not taking the stuff in 3 years and have not had anymore problems with infections. Just something you might want to investigate.

God Bless
