Functional endoscopic sinus surgery a good idea?

FESS

Computed_tomography
Hello, it depends on your history, CT findings, nasal endoscopic examination and what therapies have failed. You need to make sure the surgeon has good results with extensive experience. Be sure you are well informed and all your questions were addressed. In the right hands, it is a very successful surgery. Also discuss a possible balloon sinuplasty. That option may be as successful.

Dr. Farhad Sigari answered:

what is bilateral functional endoscopic sinus surgery?

Sinus Surgery

Sinus
It is the term for the current method of sinus surgery. Functional refers to opening up the obstructed sinuses. Endoscopic means using a 4 mm endoscopic (that is usually attached to a camera), thus it can be done all through your nostril. And bilateral means both sides. If you still have questions about what your surgeon plans to do, you should make another appt before surgery to review.

How long should one wait before starting to smoke again after functional endoscopic sinus surgery and septoplasty? Effects of smoking after a week??

DON'T DO IT!!!

Sinus_surgery
For crying out loud! Why would you even want to start smoking again if you were able to stop for 3 weeks?!?!! It's the single worst thing you can do for your health! It shortens life, causes horrible diseases and makes you stink. It's expensive and leads to early senility, impotence and wrinkles. i will NEVER tell someone to resume smoking!!! u might not even need sx if you hadn't smoked!

When can i smoke after Functional endoscopic sinus surgery? It's been 2.5 days and I don't think I can wait till a month. What will happen if I smoke?

Smoking

Hello, while you never find a doctor who encourages smoking, the reality is that smokers smoke. I would recommend giving the nose the longest time to heal without smoke as you possibly can. Rinse out your nose after you smoke ASAP. Try your hardest to find the strength inside you to stop smoking.

Dr. Brian Broker answered:

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery and septoplasty Biopsy report says chronic polynomial rhinosinusitis with native bony septum. What does that mean?

Sinus infection

Septoplasty
The term "polynomial" is probably supposed to be "poly microbial", but basically it sounds like you simply had a sinus infection, which is the main indication to get that surgery. Individual circumstances may vary and you should always review your lab results with your own physician.

How much is endoscopic sinus surgery?

Depends

Anesthesia
If you are asking what it would cost to pay for the procedure in cash without insurance you have to factor in three fees. First the surgeon anywhere from 2,000 to 30,000 or more, then the facility 5,000 to 50,000 and anesthesia 1,000 to 10,000. New York City will be extremely expensive whereas South Dakota would be much less. When paying cash make sure to shop around.

What is a bilateral endoscopic sinus surgery?

ESS

Bones
Hello, the term bilateral refers to the procedure being done on both sides of your sinuses. Using an endoscope, your surgeon will open your sinuses and remove diseased tissues and bone from the sinus cavities. You should feel well informed about this procedure before you sign consent. Know exactly what your doctor plans, risks, his/her results, expectations and alternative treatments. Good luck.
