I posted a few months about being cautiously ecstatic after seeing Dr. Shen once for a leak/abscess. He initially thought I'd only need one treatment to fix my pouch up. However, I ended up going back for a second sinusotomy procedure. He noted that the two endoclips he put in had fallen off; therefore, not allowing the healing he expected. He then put 9 clips in.
After the second surgery I was in some pretty good pain. I was back on Cipro and Tinidazole for a few weeks and he wants to see me again in a few weeks for a go at another procedure/review. I feel like a Zombie on the antibiotics (Am I unusual in that I am EXHAUSTED when I take these antiobiotics!) I stopped them three days ago and feel pretty good. I hope it continues! I feel like I empty the pouch much better without taking the ABs, but they are necessary, for sure, when the pouch is leaky!
Oh, well, just an update. I visit the board often, and while I don't post too often, I very much appreciate that participation of this great resource.
