Hi All,

I have chronic sinus along with my GERD. It is non-allergenic, meaning seasonal stuff in the air doesn't bother me. Anti-histamines do not help, Nasal Steroids don't help, Sudafed is about the only thing that does help.

The first doctor who put me on PPIs 10+ years ago was an ENT because he saw how red my throat was.

Since then reflux has become as much of a problem as sinus.

I also cannot seem to pinpoint a food to the problem (although junk/processed food does make it worse).

I'm wondering if anyone out there who has had surgery has seen improvement in any Sinus/Ear/Post Nasal Drip problems?

My GI doctor said the surgery would help control the reflux and said it MIGHT control the LPR and Sinus problems.

I had the same problem as you. As soon as I woke up from surgery my sinuses were better instantly better. It was a bonus for me.

Thank you MCord! Encouraging to hear although I don't want to count on it and then be disappointed.

How long ago was surgery?

Tomorrow will be a month for me. Recovery has it's ups and downs, but my body is doing great. The only problem I had was the mental aspect of it. I'm 36 and have 2 young daughters in which I cannot pick up and stuff right now. I was not prepared for that, but other than that and the occasional weird bowels... I'm doing great. Rest is the key. I have to remember that because I still get really tired and my mind wants to do stuff that my body is not ready for. Good luck. This site has helped me a lot. Ask any question and someone really smart usually has a good answer. That's what I do.
