Hi.  I am new to this site aw well as posting and navigating a site like this so bear with me.  I am searching for people with cf or parents of cf children  who have had endoscopic sinus surgery.  I have a child with cf who is just 10 years old and they want to do the sinus surgery and I am not too hip on the idea.  Is there anyone I can talk to out there who has been through it?  Thanks.  Mary

Hi there,

I've not had the surgery myself, but my 16 year old friend has. I saw him a week after it, and he seemed perfectly fine.
Not sure if it's helped him or not, as it's hard for him to communicate as he can't talk.

Think for a couple of days after the surgery,he had a few nose bleeds, but that cleared up and he seems ok.

All I can say for surgery itself, it is invasive to a child, but it's soon forgotton, as long as there aren't no lasting symptoms from it.
about age 11 I had an operation to fix my nose, as I broke it. It had to be straightened out as it was all wonky from where I had fallen on it. I don't remember that operation. I had a liver biopsy aged 13 and I only really remember defying nurses at every available opertunity (us cf patients were very mischievous when we were allowed to play together). Don't remember anything else.

Just wanted to let you know that, incase it's what you were worrying about.

Hope your son and you are ok, despite the sinus worries!
