Unhappy Problem with sinus surgery! Help!

Hello everyone...question:

I had sinus surgery and my deviated septum fixed 3 weeks ago for a chronic sinus infection that I could not get rid of. I seem to be feeling better however this ear popping is driving me insane! It's like my ears are still clogged up with infection. I use the neti pot two-three times a day, and also the saline nasal spray. I cannot swallow without my ears popping. Is this normal? Has anyone else had this problem? I said something to my ENT and they act like it's normal. I guess I just feel like after 3 weeks this should be diminishing, not just staying the same. Advice??

Maybe cut down on the neti pot for awhile? When I do sinus irrigation sometimes I feel fluid in my ears. I had sinus surgery 3 weeks ago also and use neti-pot 1-2 x day.

Re: Problem with sinus surgery! Help!

Thank you. I finally found out what the problem is. When they put the breathing tube down and had my mouth open so wide during surgery it caused me to have TMJ in my jaw. That is the popping sound in my ears, when my jaw clicks. So now I am on anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers until that heals.
