i had major sinus surgery last year. its called FESS surgery and it is meant to correct chronic sinusitis. they put you to sleep, break your nose, cut up your deviated septum and straighten it then sew it back in to place, they then drill behind your cheekbones to create bigger sinus cavities. its horrendous. but it worked. it gave me a new lease on life. my sinuses were actually rotting away in there. for the first time in my life (im 28) and i can breathe freely, minimal congestion, can eat dairy and not get my head blocked up. it was nasty (i had black panda eyes and swollen chipmunk cheeks with a smooshed nose, but great medication) but it was soooo worth it. look it up- F.E.S.S- its the last option after all other avenues have been exhausted.
hope this helps?
