What was your recovery like after sinus surgery?

I had sinus surgery, no septum repair, 5 weeks ago to open and drain all my sinuses because of constant infections. The doctor is happy with my healing, but I constantly feel like I have a cold. I've been sneezing several times a day, am stuffy (but can breathe through my nose fine) and sound congested. I have a slight burning sensation in my nose, like you do when you have a cold.

I am irrigating 2 x a day with my Grossan irrigator but get little out. It's mainly keeping me hydrated.

I'm wondering what other people experienced after surgery and especially how long it took before you really felt better. So far, I don't feel any better than I did before surgery when I had constant sinus infections. I'm still fatigued, still have reduced taste and smell. It seems like 5 weeks out I should be doing better than I am.

Here comes Christmas and it looks like I'm going to go through another one in a fog.

Thanks, Burgh
