KK- The Diagnosis Is Chronic Sinusitis

I do have a few polyps which will need to be removed very soon and checked for any malignant ones. They are considered low risk so hoping for the best.

The Mayo Clinic explains the issue....

Chronic sinusitis occurs when the spaces inside your nose and head (sinuses) are swollen and inflamed for three months or longer, despite treatment.

This common condition interferes with the way mucus normally drains, and makes your nose stuffy. Breathing through your nose may be difficult, and the area around your eyes might feel swollen or tender.

Chronic sinusitis can be brought on by an infection, by growths in the sinuses (nasal polyps) or swelling of the lining of your sinuses. Also called chronic rhinosinusitis, the condition can affect both adults and children.

Common signs and symptoms of chronic sinusitis include:

  • Nasal inflammation
  • Thick, discolored discharge from the nose
  • Drainage down the back of the throat (postnasal drainage)
  • Nasal obstruction or congestion, causing difficulty breathing through your nose

continued and I have all four of the above symptoms...

I may have to take a day or two off soon, but it will be before the playoffs start.

I am also planning a full upgrade to KK, it will be pushed back a bit but is still happening.  I have to make sure I am 100% and all is well moving forward.

I hope you now have some relief as far as knowing what is going on, and, from headaches and pressure. Good luck with the polyps. Removing them just may end all the suffering you’ve had to endure.

As they say, knowing is half the battle. Now just do what they recommend and you’ll win the other half. At our age, Paul, none of this is fun, but we all know we’re going to have to go through some kind of sh!t at some point.

So we do what we have to do, and then we move on the best we can. Just know that you’ve got a lot of love and support behind you. Good thoughts and wishes follow you ebvery moment of the day.

I’m glad they dug further and found the polyps, Boss.
