    The only immediate solution is surgery; ask your GP to refer you to the ENT department of a general hospital.

    Longer term, you could try taking high doses of Vitamin D3, synergised with Vitamin K2.  Some recent research suggests that the developent of polyps occurs in people who have a deficiency of Vit D3

      Thank you, FFord. Yes, surgery is no doubt the only solution. I have had to many to count, in the 20's count for sure. I dread it when I discover them.  I have an apt with the ENT in January. I never knew about the vitamin deficiency. I most certainly will give that a try.

    You need 5000iu/day; Vit D3 is easy to buy off the web (and not expensive).  But do make sure that you buy from a 'known' source.

    Vit K2 is used as well to balance the altered calcium distributin caused by D3.  Also easy to buy off the web

    I have endured 5 nasal polypectomies
