I have a new question today
For those of you who have an turbinate reduction, septoplasty, nasal polyps removed etc to cure/alleviate chronic sinusitis, please help!
Just a recap from my last post:
-Chronic debilitating sinusitis for 9 months with all that goes along with that.
-Large concha bullosa and badly deviated septum.
-8 courses of antibiotics, cortisone, steroid nasal sprays etc (none of which worked in the long run).
-Neti pot is helping.
-Endoscopic turbinate surgery and septoplasty in 7 weeks.
So basically all this is new to me.9 months ago I didn't know chronic sinusitis existed and I'd never even heard of a deviated septum much less a concha bullosa.
While I've been reading a lots of message boards and articles online about sinus surgery, most of it was about the post-op recovery so I know all about that. What I want to know is, is there anybody who has had this surgery and it's actually worked for them in the long term. My ENT said it would take about 7 or 8 months before my sinuses have recovered fully from the surgery and the sinusitis and not to expect a miracle overnight.
So is there anybody who can tell me about their experiences 8+ months post-op.
Thank you for any replies!
