On Friday May 31st, I had surgery to fix multiple sinus issues. I had consulted Dr. Daly regarding the problems with Deviated Nasal Septum, Chronic Rhinitis, Turbinate Hypertrophy and other Chronic Sinusitis. There were several procedures performed while under general anesthesia, they included;
- Endoscopic Right Concha Bullosa Resection
- Bilateral Middle Meatal Anstrostomies with Tissue Removal
- Bilateral Total Ethmoidectomies
During the surgery, Septal splints were installed and eventually would be taken out after a week . I could say that there was a reasonable amount of pain after the surgery, as if someone had hit it me with a broad side of a 2×4. I was told to expect about 2 weeks before I could resume normal activities. During the first week of recovery I slept in the recliner as to keep my head elevated. Saline spray was used to irrigate the sinuses. Here is a picture of me right after I got home from the surgery. Overall, the whole process went as expected. Hopefully the health benefits will be realized over time.
