Sinus problems can be caused by exposure to allergens. With long term exposure it can lead to sinusitis and even polyps, which in turn can obstruct the nasal passage. This article discusses whether sinus surgery is effective or not. In my personal experience, many patients would still suffer substantial symptoms after surgery. Personally, I would prefer to identify the allergens and eliminate or reduce exposure to them. I also firmly believe in nutritional support in the treatment of sinus problems. Deficiency in certain minerals can leave a patient more prone to inflamation in the lining of the nose and mucus membranes.
But I did find this article an interesting read and certainly worth a look if you are considering sinus surgery. It is by Linda Fugate PhD and I found it on EmpowHER.
