Sinus surgery - does it help? (Nasal spur)

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been waiting for years on the NHS for so op fir my chronic sinus condition.

Thinking of going private as the headaches are daily and every so often my teeth get it too.

I'm on amitryptiline for nerve pain and take solpadeine max daily too, not good I onow but no choice.

Just wondered if it's worth the op?

Thanks in advance

    Hi Rumana, I'm on the waiting list to get an op on the maxillary infundibulum, I was told in October that I have an obstructed maxillary infundibulum and I'm due for the op in July........ But I'm on the cancellation list.

      I also have pulsating pressure directly behind my nose and it puts pressure on my top teeth /mouth. I've also recently had blood shot eyes for 5 days then persistent eye floaters. Really annoying. All the best.

      Hi, thanks for the reply. Does that mean blockage where the maxillary sinuses are? What has caused this?

      Sounds awful. Especially the eye issues, as if everything else isn't bad enough.

      Hi, yes I think, one side has an obstruction, I was kicked in the nose by a horse about 12 years ago, I didn't break it but it's probably the reason why I get these problems.

    I was a chronic sinusitis sufferer for 50 years before I discovered a miracle cure. I was treated by many specialists for 10 years, and had my nose cavity cortorised two times to overcome the problem.

    This treatment helped for a short period, but as I was continually confronted by allergens my sinuses returned to their original condition. 

    I was continually taking sinusitis tablets, sprays, inhalants and analgesics, and these provided partial relief for a short period, but no long term relief.

    The miracle cure I discovered was Evening Primrose Oil. One 1000mg capsule daily was an effective cure. Evening Primrose works in about 4 hours and it is effective for a further 24 hours, so one capsule daily is usually sufficient. It reduces the sensitivity of the nervous system, so it does not react to normal irritants.It is not a drug, so it has no adverse side effects.

    Try this inexpensive treatment for 30 days, It may also be beneficial to you and save a lifetime of suffering.

    Kind Regards

      Thanks for this.

      My sinus issues aren't due to allergens, more the Nasal spur and enlarged turbines.

      Do you think the evening primrose oil would help with that?

      Thanks again. It's am awful condition.

    Evening Primrose Oil is particularly good for allergy problems, such as hayfever, rhinitis, and sinusitis. However, it is also very useful in helping to reduce pain, as it desensitises the nervous system so it does not react to normal problems.

    It will always reduce the pain, so it is worth a try to assist pain relieving analgesics

      Hi Ray, going to try this. As well as sinus headaches, every few months I get toothache with the upper left molars, like now, just fed up of this condition. I take solpadeine max daily and the Dr gave me amitryptiline to help with the pain but it's still there.

      Even if it doesn't work, anything is worth a shot.

      Just wanted to say thanks.
