Recovering from Septoplasty, Splints Are Out..Suffering from Sinusitis for 4 Months, What Can I do?

I've had sinusitis for 4 months. It didn't respond to other courses of treatment so 3 weeks ago I had a septoplasty,turbinate reduction, and they had to break my nose because the bridge was crooked, I got a cold 1 week into recovery I think it's starting to fade. I still have sinusitis symptoms like pressure headaches and extreme fatigue. I'm starting to get scared that I'll never get better. This illness has derailed my life. I barely have the energy to brush my teeth is this premature?

 In your particular case, there's no way to tell what's going on without examining the inside of the nose and having a CT scan of the sinuses to see if their openings are swollen shut or partially blocked.  This is something that should be discussed with your Rhinoplasty Surgeon.
