Post nasal polyp surgery - Air comes out of both the eyes

I had a surgery done to remove nasal polyps few weeks ago. For the last few days, when I blow my nose lightly air comes out of both the eyes. This is hapenning right after surgery. is it because of the surgery that went wrong?

Before the surgery I was on prednisone for a while. My doctor says the nasolacrimal duct could have opened a bit because of the steroids i took and not to do with the surgery.

This is disturbing me a lot. any thoughts greatly appreciated

Thanks for your response

Hi, Thanks for the query. Looks like you have a nasolacrimal fistula secondary to the surgery. Prednisolone wouldn have caused your condition. All the best. Have a nice day
