Re: Who here has nasal polyps with terrible sinus issues?

Have they suggested surgery to remove the polyps?

I had nasal polyps and a deviated septum surgery and it has made a world of difference. I can breathe much better and, along with allergy shots, have gotten my allergies and sinus infections under control.

Prior to the surgery I had chronic sinusitis and also felt like it really put a damper on my life also. I tried everything before surgery allergy shots, prednisone, etc. but nothing helped.

The surgery wasn't fun, but it wasn't that bad either. It took about two weeks to start to feel better, and much longer for my nose to feel totally healed, but I haven't had a sinus infection in over a year.

Hope this helps!
