Re: Chronic sinus problems.

Thank you so much for the information, I have been on several different antibiotics, and they never worked for long I then had to move up to sulpha based antibiotics, today my doctor gave me a steriod shot for the first time and I am hopeful it will work, and since avalox didnt work he put me on a new antibiotic called cefuroxime for 30 days. I am being referred to an ent doctor to have a cat scan of my sinuses to check for polyps,e.t.c. I use a sinus rinse twice a day and I am taking mucinex, I have been so afraid of calling in sick at work because when you do it means someone else has to come in for you and I feel guilty plus management always makes you feel like you are lying, but today my dr insisted that I take 2 days off from work to rest, so I did first time in 6 years!!! I am so grateful to know that there are people out there like you who understand what this is like and what a toll it takes on your life. Thank you SO much!!
