I had a pituitary adenoma removed in 1996. They went through under the upper lip, through the sphenoidal area of my sinus to remove it. Everything went great and I went on to have three children after this procedure, which was the end goal. BUT....since 1996, I have dealt with an annoying sinus issue since healing. Whatever scar tissue is in my sinus CONSTANTLY develops a bloody scab on it and I have to clean it out at least 3-4 times a day. Its gotten to the point I have to use a sterile bobby pin I keep just for that to clean it out with because its so far back. Has anyone that has had this surgery, had to deal with this too? I'm 49 now and can't imagine doing this when I'm 80 or 90 years old and shaky. If I ignore it, by the end of the day, the dry mucus/blood is so thick and hard I can hear myself breath through that nostril. This is so embarrassing, but I just need to know if there is hope. What can I do? I would love for this to totally heal up and be normal and not carry a hair pin in my pocket every single day like I have for the last 22 years. Please help me.
