Chronic Sinusitis: If I'm understanding you correctly, you've had chronic maxillary sinusitis for 4 years which was finally resolved 4 months ago. You need to be managed by an ENT to see if you have an anatomic abnormality obstructing proper drainage of the OMC and require surgery or be tested for environmental allergies as cause of inflammation and obstruction.
