I have chronic sinusitis, which I've had for nearly a year. After trying numerous antibiotics prescribed by my GP and none of them working I was then referred to the ENT clinic at my local hospital, by this time I was having trouble hearing as my ears were so blocked, although I've been lucky enough not to have any pain, I've had a constant nasal drip causing me to cough and clear my throat. I had a scan which showed my sinuses completely blocked and hearing test which was very poor. It was then decided that I would have to have endoscopic sinus surgery to drain my sinuses and widen them.
I had my operation on 10th March and was given a follow up appointment at the hospital for 16th June, in the meantime I was prescribed Nasonex spray to take until my appointment.
2 months after my op I am still coughing up yellow/green gunk and I still have the nasal drip and my ears keep popping!
I have been to see my GP and had to do a sputum test which revealed I still have an infection, so my GP prescribed 500mg of Erythromycin to take four times a day. I'm on my last day of antibiotics and I don't feel any better.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is there anything else I can do or take which will actually work?! I feel like I'm going to be stuck with this blasted sinusitis forever!!
