Suffer from frequent sinus problems. CT scan showing thickening. Need surgery?

I have had constant sinus problems and got a CT scan done this past saturday. My ENT just told me it showed that I have thickening and he has prescribed an antibiotic and then wants to see me again in 2 weeks. I am tired of taking steroids and prescribed nasal sprays and intibiotics etc. Do you think this all will lead to me getting survery?
