    3 month nightmare so far with sinus problems...

    Here is the full story, thanks for the help in advance...

    In the beginning of November I noticed for the first time that I was having to blow my nose repeatedly, then I noticed a constant headache in my temples and forehead...

    I went to the family practice doctor and he said a sinus infection, so they treated me with the z pack, or (something like that)

    It didn't work, so I went back and this time they gave me a different antibiotic, something like "becterin" with an incredible long name though I can't pronounce.

    It didn't work, so in late November they put me on prednisone and a third antibiotic, leviquin, and neither of those worked so I had to find an ear nose and throat specialist, which I did on my own because they couldn't find an appt for me that was reasonable time-wise.

    The specialist told me he had to operate, which he did, finally, last Wednesday, but about an a hour after the surgery(balloon with gel packing and the 45 day dissolveable stint), I started nose bleeding uncontrollably...

    I had to go BACK to the E.R. where I was treated rudely and with basic incredible mean words by the doctor there and a nurse, both insulting me because I wouldn't "calm down". (Looking for advice on reporting them)...

    They gave me some painkillers IV and refused to keep me, put a nose clamp on me and sent me back home to suffer.

    Now, finally yesterday, I went back in to the specialist and he removed the gel packs and gauze, and cleaned it out, and for the first time in 2 months I can breathe from my nose. I still have the burning sensation and some pain though in my nose, and sort of the burning eyes that feels like a flu or something.

    What can I expect going forward?

    I still have that burning pain when breathing through my nose, maybe that is the soreness? Yesterdays procedure was the worst pain of my life, he gave me a local anasthesia and it didn't do jack. It felt like torture, horrible horrible pain for about 25 minutes while he took out the gel packs and packing, then cleaned it out so I could breathe.
