HOW WILL MY SURGERY IMPACT MY EVERY DAY LIFE?
Most patients (85-90%) get significant relief of their symptoms after sinus surgery.
It may take a few weeks before you notice the impact of your surgery due to inflammation and crusting that can cause nasal obstruction or stuffiness during the first few weeks while things are healing.
Although sinus surgery helps many patients with chronic sinusitis, the inflammation and polyps may recur. Some patients may need only one surgery, while others may need ongoing medical treatment after surgery or even repeat surgery or minor procedures in the office under local anesthesia to relieve their symptoms.
