    Sinusitis & CT Report

    I've suffered with recurring sinus infections and chronic sinusitis for the past two years. In the past month, I've been allergy tested and I had a CT scan done of my sinuses. The CT report came back with muscosal thickening, a deviated septum to the right, and sinonasal polyps, the largest one being 2.4 X 1.9 cm.

    I haven't seen my ENT with the CT report yet, but I was wondering what kind of treatments/medications are available to help my situation. I worry that surgery is the only option, because I've been on a steroid nasal spray for 7 months now.

    Re: Sinusitis & CT Report

    The doctor will probably recommend a round of oral steroids to sharing the polyps before recommending surgery. Polyps have a tendency to recur so surgery isn't the best answer. Oral prednisone may be able to shrink them enough that you won't need surgery.
