Sinus surgery : Everyone is different in their recovery from sinus surgery. However, it is common for healing to continue for up to three months. I always tell my patients there may be some residual issues during that time period. You just need to follow the postop instructions. Saline lavage is the most important thing you can do to speed your recovery. Good luck!
