My husband was diagnosed last year with a severe dental infection. It ate through the palette into his sinuses and destroyed his nasal septum. He was left with permanent complications. Now he is in severe pain and can blow his nose through his mouth. The hospital is saying his ct scan looks fine but why is he having further complications? I asked about osteomyelitis but they said no. The easy answer would be a different hospital but has anyone heard or dealt with this? Don't know what to do anymore!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Osteomyelitis can be a possibility but hardly missed so if your doctors have ruled that out then no worries, the reconstructive surgery can be considered , discuss the options with a maxillofacial surgeon and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
