Ever since I had a tonsillectomy and adnoidectomy in August of this year, my life has been horrible! At first it was a simple sinus infection that would not go away, and no medicine seemed to treat it. Then, after a month or so of "sinus infection" my nose began to bleed every day, every time i blew my nose, and the inside of my nostrils were constantly bloody. I had a sinus x-ray which showed nothing, and was put on some prednisone and then a month of doxycyclene. Medication sort of helped, but now the severe nose bleeds are back. I have constant headaches, and severe TMJ, which also occured recently. I wouldnt normally assume this all could be related, but it has all occured only after my surgery, and I have never had anything like this before. All the doctors just say, "oh, your nose bleeds from dry air." That cant be possible, I've lived in winters where it was three times as dry and my nose didn't bleed the whole year. "dry air" shouldnt make your nose bleed once a day for at least 5 to 15 minutes. My surgeon is a self-centered heartless man who when i asked him about the first few weeks of sinus infection snarled that a surgey couldn't possibly cause a sinus infection. My family doctor is a man who would rather shove cases to his nurse practitioner who tells you to take antihistamines for everything and anything. I would just like some decent advice, that might tell me what to do. I have been doing some reading and wonder if I might have a bleeding disorder? I have had heavy menstrual bleeding most of my life, which my gynocologist deemed to be Endemitriosis. I bruise easily though, but I associated that with my fair skin. Anything helpful or informative would be most loved!
