As titled really? As wondering how people coped up until their op if they had nasal polyps.
Ive got a referral to a ENT specialist for Nov 19th but that seems a small lifetime away especially as its just a consultation and not the actual op. So could have to wait another 2-6weeks after that! Took me 2months to get a consultation!
Not sure how long i've been suffering exactly as ive suffered from sinus pain/pressure on and off for years, but the Dr predicts when i had sinusitis about 9months ago i probably had nasal polyps! Ive tried the steroids to reduce them but it hasnt helped at all, so now ive stopped them.
Basically Im trying to study and due to the nasal polyps which are causing me not to breathe properly so i have put on a bit of weight as i struggle with exercise due to not being able to regulate my breathing, then i cant sleep properly as i get waking up breathless and not being able to breathe properly. Furthered by the fact i think my sinus' is blocked and therefore causing an infection again as im getting a raised lump on my forehead just above my nose, then the pain and pressure all day and all night.
Its doing my nut in, thinking of going to A&E tomorrow to see if they can help as im struggling concentrating at uni and i really cant afford to. Even if i can just get some painkillers of something to tide me over till the consultation!
