I was reading some of your questions and i just wanna tell you about my experience. I'm only 16 at the moment but my Nasal Polyps rule my life. I've had numerous steroids, nasal sprays and well nothing worked. I had my adenoids removed when i was young and now an operation every two years is what i face. I couldn't breathe through my nose, coughed up continuous phlegm and headaches left, right and centre. I couldn't even blow my nose without my ears popping painfully or a splitting headache erupting.
And well.. surgery has been the only way forward, and for those who fear it believe me, it's not nice but blimey, it doesn't half make a difference. I had a Polypectomy and also my surgeon drilled a few holes in attempt to release pressure and fluid.
I've had two operations so far (Two years in a row) and last september the polyps hadn't grown back large enough for an operatoin to be needed. And now? Well, i wish i'd gotten him to do it anyway. My nose is running, my head is aching, every minute i cough, usually with phlegm, and i basically feel terrible.
So to be honest, in my opinion, surgery has been a success, even if my polyps do grow back in 6months time.
"Don't fear it. Just do it." That's my motto.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my experience.
