    Re: left maxillary retention cyst

    Yes actually I have been diagnosed with one. I've had several flare ups of sinusitis since October of 2005. I've taken everything, antibiotics, steriods for the inflammation and just recently I was perscribed water pills and an anti fungal which I begged my ENT for. I have basically been doing all the research and telling my doctors what to prescribe me. You see I was seen by an ENT in NJ initially who told me I needed surgery. Then I went for a second opinion where I was told that I didn't need surgery and was prescribed Avelox and a Predisone (Steroid) which greatly helped on reducing the swelling. Anyhow, I had been asking all of these knuckle heads to prescribe me an anti fungal because I thought that the antibiotics was causing a yeast overgrowth and none of the NYC or NJ doctors believed me. Anyhow, I recently moved to the D.C. area and picked a new ENT who is probably not pleased to have me as his patient. Well on my first visit I immediately told him to take a culture of my nose and prescribe an anti fungal. I've been on it for a week along with the water pills and they have helped greatly but I had a CT scan yesterday that showed a great reduction in the swelling but the cyst was still present. Now I'm convienced that I will probably need surgery. As a side not. This thing bugs the hell out of me. I can literally feel it in my maxillary sinus. I sometimes get a crackling sounds in my sinuses which makes if very difficult to sleep. I'm not sure if this is coming from them opening or what but I JUST WANT IT TO ******* STOP ALREADY......!!! SO I CAN REST NORMALLY AGAIN...
