Quick Update!

Met with the ENT specialist yesterday for the follow up to my CT scan. Everything looked fine; just some swelling in a few areas. He recommended continuing with the prescription nasal spray in hopes that will take care of the swollen areas over time. If I continue to do well with the spray, then surgery shouldn't be necessary!

I've had a few headaches since my initial appointment. But the severity of them has been greatly reduced. I'm also not using the OTC medicines as frequently as I was before. Which may have been contributing to "rebound" headaches according to my specialist. I would probably do myself well to cut back on my caffeine intake too. That would be a toughie!

HAve you ever tried saline washes? Like w/ Neti pot? I use it all the time when I have allergies and it works wonders!

I have the Sinucleanse neti pot. I've used it with some success. But the last time I probably didn't have my head tilted correctly and ended up with fluid in my ear!
