Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

Mucosal thickening in the right great than left maxillary & sphenoid sinuses with scattered mucosal disease in ethmoid air cells. What's this mean?

Maybe nothing

Head-sinuses
The fact that you have scattered mucosal thickening (not necessarily disease) in the sinuses does not necessarily equate to disease. Do you have yellow-green nasal discharge, post nasal discharge, pain or pressure in the face or top of the head? These are the major symptoms of rhino-sinusitis. In other words, are you feeling ill? Check with an ENT doctor.

My CT say's, i've mild mucosal disease of the ethmoid sinuses. most of the time i feel like i am not breathing. i forget to breath. what can i do

Many options

Breathing
The CT is telling you there is mild inflammation of the ethmoid sinuses, but that has no effect on breathing. You breathe through your nasal passages, so a deviated septum, turbinate congestion, polyps, and other intranasal obstructions can affect breathing. Allergies certainly can contribute. Discuss this with an ENT specialist to see if there is some help for you with medication or surgery.

Brain MRI show Bilateral mucosal disease,mexillary,ethmoid,sphenoid & frontal sinuses involvement. Why is my Dr. Not treating it with anything?Headeac

Symptoms?

Magnetic_resonance_imaging
We see this frequently to certain degrees on many many scans in asymptomatic people. Since it sounds like you have a headache, it's worth treating, but may not help. This is NOT generally a sign of acute sinusitis.

Can ethmoid and sphenoid sinus diesease be cured with medication???

Depends

Large_sinuses
Its sounds although you have intractable sinus disease. Given your prior Hx: bilateral medial turbinectomies. Resection of medial walls , of both maxillary sinuses, and a partial ethmoidectony; you might need surgical intervention but I would ask your physician.

Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

How long will sinus surgery take for ethmoid mucocele and turbinate reduction? Hour? Saline spray necessary post surgery?

An hour or less

Saline
If only one side then less than an hour. The mucocele usually has done most of the work and just needs to be opened unless the frontal is also involved. Definitely recommend saline rinses afterward as you will feel less congested and postop cleaning will be easier.
