Re: Sinus Surgery - Recovery

I can't offer any tips on getting back into CF, as my surgery was years before I found it.

I can offer this. They probably told you to avoid sneezing if at all possible, but to not hold you nose if a sneeze was unavoidable. Follow this advice. The day after my surgery, I was in a Radio Shack and fought the urge to sneeze for a couple of minutes. Urge went away and I went about my business. A few minutes later it was back with no warning, in the middle of a conversation with the clerk. I reflexively held my nose during the sneeze...and promptly nearly passed out in the aisle from the pain. Friggin' brutal!
