Sinus Surgery

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;

  • Septoplasty
  • 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.

Replacing piston in water neutralizer

Due to a problem with a leaking piston assembly in our neutralizer tank, I had to replace this part. The parts were procured from the Plumbery in Mt. Airy.

Here is the actual piston assembly as installed.

After the repair, I refreshed the level of the AN material that was needed. This process needs to be repeated about every 3 months. The level of material in the tank should be about 2/3 full.
