I have gone through your description. Nasal polyps are known for recurrence in some patients. There are different types of polyps and only the surgeons who have treated your wife would be able to answer you the causes for multiple recurrences. As of your query regarding Rh blood type, that is not the reason for her recurrent polyposis.
