To have surgery or not?
I am scheduled for sinus surgery soon and not even sure what is going to happen, was just told ent going in to widen things. I have had sinusitis/fungal sinus for the last 6 months and I have a hypertrophic turbinate. When the left side swells up, I can feel it, it goes down my throat and I feel like my breathing is obstructed. Not sure what that is about, that hasn't been addressed, I can never get an answer. I wake up because my eyes sting and have a hard time opening my eyes after sleeping due to stinging. I feel pressure behind my eyes a lot. I read about empty nose syndrome, which scares me, not sure if this is something I need to concern myself with though. I was on oral steroids, antibiotics for a long time, still using 2 types of nasal sprays. ENT suspects fungal allergy, but no anti fungal offered. Will having surgery help or set me up for a lifetime of headaches, infections and pain?
