Re: Sinus surgery
I agree with both of the previous replies. I have had the surgery and it was only partially helpful. My ENT doc did help me understand that an underlying part of my condition is systemic inflammation, i.e., I have irritiable bowels (IBS), irritable skin (psoriasis), irritable lungs, and irritable sinuses. The follow-up treatments, saline/med flushing at home, etc. are very important and helpful.
I would completely disregard the candida idea unless 1) he has had long-term antibiotic use, or 2) absolutely nothing else fits. I have also had candida issues in the past and regular probiotics works. But the marketers of candida-related products/protocols have been successful to the point of absurdity. There is no symptom for which they will not assign candida as a cause and their products as a solution. Candida is certainly not the issue unless he is having broader systemic issues. imo & fwiw
