Re: Please help! Septoplasty and sinus surgery 3 weeks ago...feel worse!

Hi,

I feel your pain!! I had septoplasty and turbinate surgery 1 1/2 years ago. It took at least 6 months (if not longer!)for the swelling inside to subside and it hurt to touch my nose in any way for at least that long. I was also very frustrated, but now I have never felt better. I haven't had a sinus infection in over a year, and I don't get any more pressure headaches.

Hang in there, it will get better. Three weeks isn't long at all (I know it feels like forever when you're going through it!)
