    Positive energy to you so that you can heal in comfort! I have a friend who has had several sinus surgeries for various blockages and she is always glad to "recover" her sense of smell, and be able to USE her nose for breathing! :?

    I've never heard of sinus surgery before. Sounds painful! I have good luck getting unstuffed feeling by smelling the steam from heated white vinegar, my grandmother use this remedy all her life. I don't know about doing it after surgery work though.

    It will take another week or two for the swelling to go down in there. You should start to notice a little improvement day by day after week 2 (or at least that's what they told my dad several years ago).

    Wishing you continued healing and a sign soon that the surgery was a success.
