Sinus surgery fixed me!

Hi all,

This isn't a question. Just a testament to how much having a septoplasty/concha bullosa has helped me.

After battling crippling sinus infections at least 4 times a year for 20 years and chronic sinusitis for the past almost 12 months. I finally caved and had my very large concha bullosa opened and my deviated septum corrected.

I'm only 9 days post-op and the first week was very rough but I right now feel better than I have in at least a year. I don't feel like I have a sinus infection at all anymore. I haven't had a sinus headache or a sore throat since the surgery, my breathing is better than it has been in 10 years, I'm not permanently dizzy and all the sinus pain/pressure in my forehead, cheeks and round my eyes are gone as well as my constant post nasal drip.

The worst part of the whole recovery was excess swelling around my splints which caused them to cut it the walls of my septum and caused two very small abscesses which were very very painful for a few days but an antibiotic ointment and a steroid nasal spray cleared that right up.

Maybe it is too early to tell if this has made any lasting difference but so far things are looking good

So anybody who is looking at having a septoplasty or concha bullosa reduction. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
