Update on the ole sinuses
It's be 12 days since my sinus surgery. I went back 2 days ago to my ENT for my post-op follow up. I did find out he did remove a bone spur and straighten my septum a bit. My recovery has been fairly easy. I've had a lot of drainage (mainly down my throat) and am stuffy a lil at times. It took a week to get my stamina back up for sure. But what I've been amazed it how I've not had the pressure or headaches. In the last 12 days I've had a few minor headaches that went away immediately with tylenol. Before surgery I would have sinus headaches almost daily...they would last all day and be miserable. I can also breathe through my nose really, really well. I cannot believe how I was used to not breathing well! I'm very pleased I did the surgery. It was not bad at all and I can already tell a difference. I hope that it stays this way for sure. I go back in 6 weeks for another follow up!
