I am 19 years old and was diagnosed with CF when I was 5 BECAUSE I too had nasal pollyps. I used to get them so bad every year. But I will tell you what the Dr.'s have told me: the growth of nasal pollyps decreases with age. From age 5 to 13 I was in the hospital every year getting them removed. Now I go years without growing any. As far as the negative things you hear about CF...everything in life has an upside and a downside, it's just a matter of what you choose to believe in! In this disease I cannot stress how much a positive attitude helps to keep you healthy!!! There are times when things do get sad and you can't help but cry, but all you can do is get it all out ad move on. Enjoy every minute of life because it is so precious. Way too many people take it for granted! Best wishes for you and your brother!
