Hi had a bilateral fezz done last April for chronic sinusitis, have had nine antibiotics since as they can t clear infection. Now told I need another operation to try and sort out this infection. Over the last month have noticed one side of my throat is sore on swallowing and I have a fluid filled pouch on my collar bone. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis which is active at the moment and wonder if this fluid is connected to that or to the sinus infection. Many thanks

Hi it has been 2 weeks since my Fess surgery on my sinuses. I am now developing a cough that is similar to what I was experiencing when I had chronic sinusitis. It is worse in the morning and night and I am coughing up infected-looking mucus. Could I have another sinus infection or is this a normal post- op symptom? There is no more blood at this stage and I am irrigating 3x a day.
