Sleeping Better and No Sinus Infections After Surgery

Sleeping Better and No Sinus Infections After Surgery

“Had chronic sinusitis, couldn’t sleep, constantly on medicine. Surgery removed a hundred polyps. Post surgery, no congestion, sleep better than I have in I had chronic sinusitis for over 5 years. I couldn’t sleep and was constantly on medicine (mostly nasal spray, steroids and antibiotics. I was literally suffering. I went to see Dr. Setzen, to understand my options. His office was clean and he and his staff are friendly and courteous. Dr. Setzen used some advanced imaging techniques to show me exactly what the problems were and how they could be remedied through surgery. During the surgery he removed over 100 polyps from my sinuses. Immediately after surgery Dr. Setzen followed up with me in his office to make sure I was recovering well. He removed all of the surgical packing about 4 days later and I took my first breathe which was felt like being born again. I had no idea I was supposed to be getting that much oxygen all along! After six months I have had no congestion, no infections, and no negative outcomes from the surgery. It was one of the best decisions I have made and Dr. Setzen did an amazing job.”
