Surgery Is Being Scheduled

Hello my friends, praying you are all doing well. Eddie has been off since Saturday, does not go back to work until Thursday. This is the first time I have been online since Friday. I have missed emailing you, blogging, and visiting your blogs. But, have enjoyed time with my lovebug, and of course, coco. Well, I went to the sinus doctor today for my follow-up visit. I told him that none of the medicine he had me on was working, not even the antibiotics he had me on for a month. I am still miserable, feeling bad, cannot rest. He said, I have chronic sinusitis, enlarged turbinates, and a deviated septum. My neurologist worries that the continued sinusitis, will eventually cause an infection to go to my brain. I really do not need any more problems for my brain. He said, over the counter medications have not worked for me, and are not going to work. Neither will prescribed medications. So, I have to have sinus surgery. It is called, septoplasty, and turbinate surgery. I will be having it the last week in August, not sure what day yet, will be finding out next week. Eddie will be off that week in August, so that will work out good. Please begin to pray for me, would very much appreciate it. Pray that the surgery will go well, with no complications, and that the healing process, which will be eight weeks, will go well. of course, also pray that after the healing process is over with, I will feel much better. Love, and sweet blessings to all of you.

I had a friend who had this surgery. It relieved a lot of her sinus pressure, which was constant! the first day she felt lousy...but after that she felt great..and has happy she had the surgery.
good luck!

I am sorry to hear that the other things tried for your sinuses have not been successful. Will be praying for you, Denise, and for the doctors doing the surgery. Keep us posted as it draws nearer.

I've had sinus surgery twice, 10 years apart. They did the septum the first time. Both times they put windows in my sinuses. I had it for the same reasons plus not being able to breathe through my nose.
I know you'll feel much better after but you'll have a black eye right after. Let us know the date. Praying your health improves.
Love you,
Mama Bear

I feel sad to hear that you are going to have surgery. I can say that my brother had that surgery and did very well. I probably need it. I have a lot of sinus problems. You will be in my prayers.
