Re: Dr Says Surgery Will Not Help my Condition

hope this helps
I have to get the surgery to cure the mucocele on the frontal sinus, regardless. I just was despairing that the ENT said that I would have no further improvement.

It doesn't make sense to say that I am "cured" according to the CT, and then say that there is still infection. And then to conlcude that no further improvement will be made.

Weird. I am on to another opinion and have a recomended surgeron - appt. next week.
