Three months after sinus surgery
- Many patients are not exactly sure what type of sinus surgery they had or why sinus surgery was recommended in the first place. That information would make answering this question easier.
- There are many reasons for still feeling blocked including persistent allergies, residual polyps, scar tissue or a new awareness of difference between the two sides.
- I would just followup with the surgeon to see of there is an easy and fixable solution to the symptom.
