    Staph Infection in sinuses?

    6-25-10 I had a balloon sinus surgery/procedure to open passages/reduce turbinates and shave off a polyp. Everything went well, however, my doc found a "fungal ball".......or so he thought. It turned out to be staph.

    After taking the post-surgery standard regimen of antibiotics, I now have another infection. Doc suspects that I have a staph colonization.

    Anyone have experience? I am on a ten day regimen of Avalox, waiting for inus culture to come back to confirm that it's staph.

    Well, when i had my tonsillectomy in 2009, fungal balls were found in my tonsils.
    Then i had an excrutiating sinus infection which turned out to be staph, but i dont know if the staph is still there. I had a doctor that didnt communicate well. But now im going to a new doctor... i have inflamation of the linings and a cyst in my left maxillary. One of my latest infections was treated with avalox too, but it didnt work. Either way, i guess i just have to wait and see what happens. Im having surgery next month and im scared to death.
