Not: But repeated surgeries could potentially damaged the nasal tissue causing atrophy and dryness . If you have needed 4 sinus surgeries at age 27, the 5th one is not far away unless you do something about it. I recommend you consult an allergist to find out the cause (cystic fibrosis, aspirin-intolerance, fungal sinusitis etc).
