Maxillary sinus operation - eek

After a year and a half of being diagnosed with asthma (from the asthma nurse gp) i have finally got the correct diagnosis of that my maxillary sinus is completely blocked. It has taken me that long to get this diagnosis. My main symptom is coughing and I am hoping after Friday that my coughing will subside. Quite worried about the operation though. 😢. Please listen to your instincts as none of my asthma treatment was doing anything and I never felt like i had asthma. Roll on Friday being over!

Good luck! I've had sinus and asthma issues all my life. I used to dream about having my sinuses drained wishing it would take the pain away. I know people who have had it done and they say it does help. I hope you feel better soon.

You'll find immense relief after the operation. I had mine a year ago. Good luck
