I had a CT scan done of my sinuses a few weeks ago. The results are in. It has been recommended to me that I have surgery. Specifically, three different procedures done at one time. On my septum (it is blocking most of my left nasal cavity)...blah, blah, blah, something else and something else after that - I'm not going to bore you.
The recovery looks like about a week. In and out on the same day. Stints in my nose and won't be able to breathe through my nostrils for about a week. (I'm not sure how well I will do with the claustrophobic feeling of that.)
So hello 2nd opinion and lots and lots of research on the internet. Oh and lots of thinking too.
