    i have the same issue ten weeks after my last treatMent.  Constant post nasal drip and I choke because of the lack of saliva.    Ent surgeon recommended mucinex and lots of water.   So far it has not helped.   Gulping hot water helps, as does the sauna

    Bless You.


    I am 5+ years out and my sinus new normal does drip daily, but not all the time, requires a Kleenex box next to my chair, computer and bed and produces a series of sneezes (sometimes 10 in a row) and on a regular bases.

    No headaches.

    I never had any of these issues pre-cancer.  I will have to give the nod to the rads, they just don’t know when to stop.
