A CT scan convinced me to have surgery
In 2005, my allergist recommended that I see another surgeon. He showed me CT images of the sinuses above my eyebrows and below my eyes. They were packed tight with swollen tissue. He said they may have been that way for 40 years. Thinking back on it, I rarely sneezed, and my nose never ran, so maybe he was onto something. He suggested a type of sinus surgery that was quick and didn't require a painful recovery. This time, I agreed to do it.
