I went back to my ENT this week, and he says one side of my sinuses is completely healed and the other is 85% healed. I’m still adding the antibiotic powder to my twice daily nose wash for another week. And he has dismissed me, since this ENT does not accept my new insurance.
He did debride a little in the side with scabs, but I was prepared this time and took a Lortab ahead of time. That helped bear the discomfort a lot.
I have made connections with another ENT who accepts my new insurance and has credentials in my hospital. I’ll see him in a couple of weeks. I’m glad I had the FESS surgery almost four months ago to have my sinus cavities opened up. But I’m still swallowing gunk constantly. And I’m still having on again, off again issues with my right eye hurting and discharging. Hopefully he will be more aggressive with clearing up this sinus drainage I’ve had for over a year.
I have diligently followed the neti pot routine every day. My MITO has turned this routine healing process into a challenge, because my cells do not create energy properly – and that translates into very slow healing.
I’m feeling very thankful to God that I’m gradually healing, as I have certainly prayed for it!
