I went under the knife on Tuesday. Had my sinuses shredded, the canal walls shaved, a deviated septum fixed, and spreader grafts put in place. That day was no fun. Try puking while shooting a stream of blood out of both nostrils! But, with some heavy duty pain pills, and some war movies to watch, I am steadily progressing. The only problem is that I take the pain pills every four hours, and they seem to last only three. The funny thing is, I feel all the pain in my teeth, not the sinuses.

I've got a month to a month and a half until I can engage in exercise again. So, I've got time to resort, reclassify and reorganize all my gun stuff once again! :smile:

BTW, WarDawg, I am on percocet, whachoo got? [/i]

I got a sinus infection in June of 2005. I've been on antibiotics since, and it never went away. Basically the sinus passageways are too small for someone my size. There is not enough drainage, so an infection gets in and stays. So, in order to increase drainage, they had to rip out sinus walls, and enlarge the passageways. My deviated septum (cartilage in the middle of the nose) did not help. My father also had the surgery, which he affectionately called the "roto-rooter". I inherited his sinuses. This should fix me for life. It is a fairly common operation. Not that big of a deal, but still no fun.

I have heard of that before. Had a similar problem a few years ago, but it was an "unknown growth" blocking my sinuses, not small passegeways. When you have sinus surgery though, it usually makes your teeth or jaw hurt like hell. Hydrocodone or whatever is good stuff for pain though. :tokeit:

I had the same thing done about 4 years ago. Take your pain meds as you need them and if you run out call the doctor for more. It gets better but you will be blowing bloody chunks out of your nose for a couple of months.

The interesting part will be when I can resume the saline rinses. Should be some good stuff coming out with that! :wink:

Holy crap! :shock: Sorry to hear about that. Broken again, or sprained? Well, welcome to the injury list! If you lived closer, I would send over my "Band of Brothers" CD set to watch.

Sorry to hear about yall pains my brothers..... I went outside today to get off the couch . I worked on a Ironwood stockset for a Mak 90. Fitting and sanding and the such. I was sitting. Warm weather . Shirt off enjoying. Got stung by a damn bee and got sunburned. Arm is swollen from the damn bee. I got off balanced from swingin at the damn bee that just stung me and twisted my just worked on knee. It hurts like HELL now.Swollen up even more. My damn back hurts from the damn sunburn..... Im just going to stay in the house till I wither away. I did get up last night and went and watched my Dojo go through Testing for belts. I was really impressed by the young kids doing it. Great sport to get into. Hope yall are feeling better. WarDawg is going to drink some orange juice and pop a painpill and go to bed. I can't take no more ... Good night. WarDawg
