So what were the results?  I'm sorry you've had that pain for so long.  I know it well.  My husband also has had chronic sinus problems to the point of having surgery.  That was several years ago and he is not a candidate for any more surgeries due to a complication from the first (he had a bone piece missing after the first that just has a thin layer like egg shell separating his sinuses from brain.  His surgeon said no surgery ever.  No explanation for how that happened between the first surgery and second . . .  but anyway, he uses a netti pot religiously.  He will use Mucinex to thin mucus in sinuses.  Ibuprofen to reduce swelling.  All of these things help.  What is your doctor recommending?
