Dear No Coke,
Congratulations, wise decision! It will take a while for your body to recover - at least a year. Do you have a post nasal drip? Maybe you should let an ENT specialist look at your nose and decide whether you need cortisone to stop the "dripping". I am just worried that cortisone nose spray will cause nose bleeds so it will be best if a specialist can have a proper look.
