I had a CT scan a few days ago as a follow-on to a comment made by a technician who reviewed the brain MRI taken after my bicycle accident last year.
The MRI cuts through your head at such an angle that it misses a good portion of the sinuses, but the tech noticed that what he could see seemed pretty occluded.
So, around a year later due to timing, changing jobs and getting health insurance set up properly again I finally get the CT scan done to check out the sinuses and my doctor called me to tell me he was pretty shocked to see how blocked up all the sinuses are.
One of my friends has recently had sinus surgery for a different reason so I’m going to pick his brain the next time I see him, but if you’ve had it, what’s been your experience?
My driving motivation is that I’ve been pretty “heavy headed” for a long time now. We’ve been treating it as if the associated lethargy was possibly infection or allergy related. It seems almost a relief to finally have a reason for just wanting to sleep during my free time.
The prognosis of surgery may be premature, I still need to see a specialist (I’ll be calling on Tuesday to set this up) but I’m very much looking forward to progress and “lightening up”.
