Hi Joanne

This sounds like a problem that needs to be referred to an ENT specialist. My suggestion is that he have a follow-up appointment with the specialist that performed the procedure or that he consult another ENT for a second opinion.

Feel free to email me and I will give you a referral to an ENT near you if you want a second opinion.

Kind regards
