I'm so sorry to hear you are having so much trouble. Have you had a CT scan since your surgery? Perhaps you should see a different ENT and get a second opinion.

Surgery really helped me, but it wasn't a bed of roses either. For me it took surgery, shots, medicines, irrigations, HEPA air cleaners combined to get better. Have you tried all these things at the same time?

hello,actually i have had some cts since but only by the avg dr.,ill be sure to demand a fresh ct at this upcoming appointment.i beleive that theres a blockage somewhere,i get nothing when i flush just clear?it seems to come out when it wants and its aweful.did you get those,i call them tampons stuffed up your nose after surgery?i had those for a week and bled alot.i had a spur cut out,a deviated septum,and some other problems are on the same side as before surgery.i dont think ive ever got rid of the left side infection.

What kind of surgery did you get? Do you suffer from what they call "Empty Nose Syndrome" perhaps your doctor removed too much out of your turbinates.

I think you need to see another ENT. I've been dealing with everything you deal with but for 2 years now and hoping to get better. I have had 3 sinus surgeries though, with a bit of relief, but I still get constant sinus infections. Get in to another ENT, get a good CTscan and go from there!
