    Who besides me gets a sinus infection 3 weeks post sinus surgery????!

    I had my septoplasty and sinus surgery 3 weeks ago, and today i got hit with another sinus infection. my ent wants me in tomorrow to do a culture. he said it is very common. i hope so, but i never heard of anyone having an infection like that.

    I technically didn't get a new infection, but nasty stuff was draining out of me from the sinuses he didn't operate on. I got an extension of the post surgery antibiotic, and after that I was infection free for a long time.

    I did the last time I had surgery. It is common, don't worry. With all that inflammtion post surgery things are bound to happen.

    I had surgery in February and I had a couple of infections afterwards. Its totally common (frustrating I know)...but don't worry.
