Re: Tonsil & Sinus surgery @ same time- HELP!
Lucky, I didn't have much swelling or black eyes or anything like that with mine.
My surgery entailed endoscopic sinus passage widenning, endoscopic insertion of drainage windows in all sinus cavities, complete opening and evacuation of the ethnoid and rear sinus cavities, a membrane removal of turbonide membrane to 49% of the original quantity of membrane.
What procedure did the doctor use on your mother. Was it endoscopic? Did she perhaps have stitches in her scalp area? Everyone reacts to surgery differently. Stints can be painful if the area is not kept moist and scabbing forms over the stints.. same with packing removal.. dry packing rips off the freshly formed and healed skin if it isn't kept moist.
Saline spray to keept things moist is a must. I had to use mine every two hours while I was awake. My husband had to do the same.. every four hours he was awake when he had a turboplasty and pollump removal.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
