Going for sinus op on Wednesday

This Wednesday I'm going in for my sinus operations, it's a FESS (draining of the mucus) a septoplasty (straightening my septum) which is apparently very misshaped inside and a CIT (burning out inflammation).

For 2 weeks I'll be terribly blocked but then I should start to feel better after that, I've had terrible pressure since before Xmas, headaches and dizziness. So I'm relieved that it should start to clear. Fingers crossed, finally after years it feels like I'm getting somewhere. It's amazing what gets done when you take the GP out of the equation!

Great news for you. I had similar op in 2007 (gosh, ten years ago 😳), it was all fine, apart from the prednisone which made me feel so ill & the normal recovery from General anaesthetic. Let us know how you get on. P
