Sinus disease
Chronic bilateral maxillary and ethmoid sinus disease ... what is the typical course of treatment?  I had a CT scan where this was diagnosed.  Further it states: possible superimposed acute right maxillary sinusitis.  Obstructed left osteomeatal complexes and possibly on the right as well.  
  I finished a course of treatment with antibiotics and feel no improvement.  Does this disease usually require surgery?  I also have diminished lung capacity.

Has the doctor tried any steroids like prednisone - this is sometimes used to combat the inflammation. My son has gotten some relief from acupuncture. He has had 3 surgeries, 2 in 2006 and 1 in Aug 2007. Although, he has persistent congestion and discomfort, the sinuses are draining which is better than having surgery. Read up on sinus issues and ask your doctor lots of questions. Do you have allergies? No doctor that we have seen recommends surgery right away, they try different treatments for at least 3-4 months. Good luck
