Re: Sinus Surgery Recovery

Sinus surgery is a fairly big deal, so it's perfectly normal to feel cruddy...Your body has been through a lot. Additionally, depending on the length of the surgery, the anthesiologist probably used a dozen or more potent meds to keep your asleep & etc. Thus, it takes a few days to rid yourself of the "hangover." Again, this is normal.

Re: the stints, if you have them, they are clear and pressed against the septum to keep it straight and in place for a few days. It's relatively painless when they are removed. In fact, at your follow up visits when the ENT cleans you out, you will feel better immediately.

Be sure to follow all the ENT's instructions completely....It's very important.

Best of luck to you moving forward....Each day is better than the one before.
