Excellent choice of words for sinus surgery BJ!! lol




Well guys I'm ok. Took about 2hrs for the surgery. The fungus that I din't think was in there was really bad the doc said. If I had let it go it would have eventually gotten all the way to my brain and would have been really bad. he said it like pressure washing peanut butter to get it out.


Actually my sinuses are not that bad, but still bleeding more than they should. However, my throat is killing me from getting my tonsils taken out. Doc said he wasn't even gonna tell me a white lie, it's gonna be pretty bad to deal with at my age.

I had so many sinus and tonsil problems I'm glad I did it, now I just gotta heal.


Thanks for all the kind words and I'll be back with y'all soon!

Been there, I had three laser surgeries on my legs and two rounds of injections to fix my veins and a blood flow problem. I had to have one more round of injections in March. I was sore afterwords! The problems was solved my legs don't swell anymore or hurt. I could not even keep shoes on for very long it was WORTH IT. No hurting my energy is back I feel much better I am more myself.

"disco-biscuits" ... HA!!! I never heard that before. Man I thought the nose work would be worse than the tonsils. But also I have heard of most people getting them removed when they are kids too... not adults. Keep yer chin up Wabb.

It's been about 5 weeks since it was done. As I already said the sinus stuff was nothing at all. Seriously it was nothing like I expected and could have easily gone back to work after a couple of days. However, the tonsils were pretty rough. A big pain relief was the medicated lolly pops. 1-2 minute of those things and your mouth and throat are NUMB!!
One bad part was I couldn't sleep much and the worst part was I can't sit and do nothing all day. By Thursday I was dying to get out of the house so I called my boss (he's a good friend btw) and we met for breakfast Friday morning. Needless to say I didn't have much energy partly because I lost almost 10lbs in 4 days and eating nothing but soup.
I went back to work Monday (7 days later) still pretty much eating; soup, mashed potatos, mac & cheese, the occasional piece of baked chicken, drinking gatorade ( which is still the only thing I want to drink) and taking roxicet every 4 hours. No need to tell you that I went back to work too soon. Talking about killed my throat and made the recovery time a lot longer than if I had stayed at home another week.

The only problem I still had ( still have) is my uvula was swollen as big as my thumb and still is really swollen. I tried to get the doc to cut it out during the surgery, but he wouldn't and he still doesn't want to.

The doc visit 10 days later was a good report and I just needed to continue to heal and the swelling in the roof of my mouth / uvula should go away in a few months. At some point I may just get out a good pair of needle nose wire cutters and cut it out myself!

Long story short I wish I had done it years sooner and if you need any kind of simple surgery like mine was do what the doc tells you and it will make it A LOT EASIER ON YOURSELF!! lol I just don't listen to them very well when it comes to resting and giving your body time to heal.
