I'm going in for sinus surgery. Do any of you have advice or experience with it?
It is done as an outpatient surgery, My sinus's are nearly nonexisent at this point and the ENT believes I will recover a great portion of ventilation capacity once the polyps/deviated septum and opening of the various sinus's is repaired.
If that is true, I may be coming up with some fitness improvements, as well as decreased sinus and lung infections and less asthma too.
Maybe I am hoping for too much.

Jim - had pretty much the same thing, except for the polyps. I had a Caldwell-Luc for the sinus as well as the septum repaired. I talked with a lot of people who had it done, and they all said the same thing - the surgery and recuperation suck, but it's well worth it. After having mine, I fully agree. Before - every time the winds blew here in So CA, or I had a cold, I'd get a sinus infection and headache that would last four or five weeks (in other words, it was almost all the time). Post-op (Jan 05) I have only had one, and it lasted a week or so.

E-mail me off line if you like more particulars about what to expect.
