How do I know if I need sinus surgery?

the sinuses are air passages or air pockets in our face they include the frontal sinuses which lie behind the forehead the maxillary sinus is what we classically consider our sinuses behind the cheeks on either side the ethmoid sinuses which lie between the eyes and finally a set of sinuses in the back of the nose called the sphenoid sinuses these all drain into the nasal cavity and all produce mucus the most common causes of sinus problems include nasal allergies deviated septum or a crooked septum and in some cases low-grade chronic sinusitis which is a combination of infection and possibly allergic inflammation symptoms of sinus infection include stuffy nose discolored mucus from the nose maybe yellow green mucus diminished sense of smell if you have severe headaches sinus surgery is not likely to help most of the time severe headaches are caused by migraine headache or other headache conditions after a thorough evaluation and if a diagnosis of chronic sinusitis has been made your surgeon will offer what’s called maximal medical treatment that may include a combination of extended antibiotics oral steroid treatment sinus irrigations and topical nasal steroid sprays after these have been completed a cat-scan will be obtained a cat scan will help us to show whether there is persistent sinus disease and whether a surgical intervention would be part of the therapy offered to you here’s an example of a normal cat scan of the sinus the maxillary or cheek sinuses are clear and there is no blockage in the sinus opening the sinuses are clear as well between the eyes this is a cat scan reviewing sinus disease or chronic sinusitis the sinus is between the eyes are blocked and have great tissue or polyps obstructing the sinus passages the maxillary sinuses or cheek sinuses are also involved and have great tissue or swollen tissue within them during an escaping sinus surgery surgeon places the endoscope in the nasal cavity removing small pea of swollen tissue polyps and small pieces of bone to open up the sinus passages cat scan abnormalities of the sinuses are really common in fact many people have cat scan abnormalities of their sinuses and most of those don’t require sinus surgery your doctor can’t just look at your cat scan and know that you need sinus surgery your doctor needs to talk with you evaluate your symptoms and consider a course of medical therapy before deciding on sinus surgery you

  6. I am 14,went through a post nasal drip,got diagnosed with acute bronchitis,2 days after that i was diagnosed with sinusitis (thickened mucus only) and i have no headache at all just constant need to swallow and it does not help as the mucus is still there. It is hard to spit it out and it is really thick. I take augumentin and monaliz nasal spray. Any tips

  7. This is what I do. Wear a allergy mask, if you feel relieved in a 2 days and nothing gets worse , you have allergies, if not,its an infection and you should get a sputum test and deep swab of your sinuses for culture testing. Never skip culture testing. Its the main failure point of ent and doctors! And never put tap water in your sinus cavities, lots of living organisms in tap water that you do not ever want in your nasal passages and brain, you will provide the ultimate paradise for these creatures to live in!

  8. This is not true, the septal spur can cause severe headaches, this was written since the 1925s, but I just don't know whats wrong with the new doctors… just google contact point headache or sluder neurlgria it caused by a septal spur

  9. This lady is a idiot she said sinus problems dont cause headaches lol. Yes they do Sinus problemes cause migraines. Lol

  10. this may sound like a stupid question but what is grey tissue? is it when the tissue in the body is dead? and if so does it grow back?

  11. No natural time proven remedies here because there no money$$$$ in them. Always go for radical surgery to drill out your sinus cavities because that’s the only way your doctor can pay for his expensive condo in Miami Beach.

  12. The problem with bad sinuses is that it's a catch 22. Sinus surgery is dangerous from what I've noticed and the antibiotics they want to give you to treat sinus infections are also dangerous (ie flouroquinolones it however they're spelled)

  13. Please help me I don't have sinuses my cells are clean but it still hurts as if they are blocked(they used to be blocked ) please help

  14. Sinus surgery can cause atrophic rhinitis and Empty Nose Syndrome. This is where the mucosa dries out and you can't feel your own breathing anymore. People have committed suicide from this. Look it up. ☹️☹️☹️

  16. Reminder to All ignorant ENT Surgeons of the World who perform turbinate reduction surgery in order to “improve peoples’ lives”:

    Please REFRAIN, ABSTAIN from enticing your patients into any form of Turbinectomy involving the reduction by any degree of Inferior Turbinates or Middle Turbinates or both. If your patients develop Empty Nose Syndrome, you will be cursed by the sleepless souls for your entire lifetime. You only keep running away from them but as far as the eye can see is much too far for you to be!

    We don’t know if You may be blacklisted by the masses of ENS patients you have created, or experience a detour in your career paths. We are coming to a theatre near you, to get you! Everyone of you!

    Stay Sleepless like us all. Our Horrors are not of a Little Shop.

  27. Hi, just wondering does anyone know if my symptoms are sinus related? My symptoms are: pressure in the forehead and back of the nose, slight dizziness and I can hear a pulse in my right ear sometimes. There's mucus dripping to my throat often but it's clear. It goes away if I do a Sinus exercise (search Austin Goh on Youtube) but it comes back in a few hours. I have allergies but this is a first befause this is not a normal allergy attack for me. I went to the ENT 3 weeks ago becaus I thought I had vertigo but he told me it wasn't. He did tell me if my symptoms persist, I should do an X ray on my nose which I haven't done yet. My symptoms are slightly improving but I just want to find out if this is nose related so I could go to the appropriate doctor. Thanks for the responses!
