Re: What To Do Next...Don't Want Sinus Surgery...

I knew I would forget some details (as I was in a hurry AND kept getting interrupted), and so I did!

About allergy testing - I believe I was told there is an allergist in the ENT office...should I go somewhere else?

I have a SinuCleanse Pot which I use at least once a day, sometimes twice. I do feel better when I do it at least twice a day, but the ENT suggested I cut back to once every two days (after he couldn't explain my infection switching sides).

I do have Flonase spray but honestly, I'm not good about using it everyday. I will make sure I use it regularly.

I'll keep the acid reflux in mind...although I really do not ever have any of those symptoms.

Oral steroids - I got a shot and a week (I think) of oral steroids my first ENT visit. Aren't these the ones that cause weight gain? Funny thing...I actually lost weight while taking them.

I'm sure I've still forgotten something. Thanks so much for your input.
