I have both the Neti Pot and a squeeze bottle for the nasal rinse. I use the squeeze bottle. One rinse has kept me in reasonably good shape for 2 nights and I think I will use it again tonight. I am going to try the Xlear that Daria recommends.
Lucked out today. Had to go to the local drug store anyway and I found the Xlear right there on the shelf. It looks like tonight I will start the Xlear rather than a follow up nasal rinse. Hope this works. Of course it has not helped that my ignorant DME has sent me nothing but standard filters not the hypoallergenic ones that I need and I did not catch it for a while. Needless to say, I will be checking out the next batch much more closely.
Fresh from a visit with my ENT post nasal surgery. She said that it is normal for the nasal turbinates to swell on the low side and unclog when turning to the other side. I told her that I sometimes had to shut off my machine and stand up to reduce the turbinate swelling. She suggested using Ayr Saline gel to keep my nostrils moist. That could help reduce the swelling. I think I would like to get some of that Wilson's solution as well. Not being able to breathe is a real issue for compliance. I am not a mouth breather so a FF Mask probably wouldn't help. I would like to try a larger nasal mask because the one I have presses on my nostrils sometimes clogging them. Seems like this problem is pretty common.
