Another medical problems thread


Recommended Posts

Over the last couple of years nearly all of the colds I've had have been very painful in the sinus area between my eyes. Went to see a specialist today and he reckons I have whats known as nasal polyps - growths on the mucus membranes which constrict the airflows and cause this type of problem.

 

He gave me a nasal spay and I have to go for a scan with the prospect of possible surgery which funnily enough my sister had to have about 5 years ago (hers was more serious) so it may be genetic.

 

Anyone any experience of this? I know its not as potentially amusing as Greg's nads but I would still like to know.

Don't think I have nasal poylps, but every time I get ill by nose gets very clogged up, which isn't nice because it's always a bit clogged up. That's why I have next to no sense of smell. I went to the see a specialist and I had a scan also. I believe my septum is bent and what's more is that I have very strong hayfever, yet desptie that I do find myself sneezing at times in the winter. I may get surgery but it would mean six months on the waiting list and would have to be at home for two weeks doing nothing.

 

It probably is genetic also, because my dad also had an operation five years ago, to widen his septum as he struggled to breathe - so the same situation as me.

Brother-in-law went to have his removed at The Nuffield. They couldn't stop the bleeding afterwards so he was packed off to the good old NHS.

 

The more I think about it, the more I think it was his sinusus (sp) that were removed. Oh well, somewhere behind his sneck anyway ! :lol:

You can't have your sinuses removed. Adenoids?

Isn't it fucking obvious that I meant adenoids?? :P As a fucking doctor, you should have known exactly what I meant. Tsk! :(
