I'm 38 yrs old female, have had sinusitis for a period of 6 years from 1997 to 2003 along with 4 sinus surgeries with in that time frame. I hemorrhaged after sinus surg. # 2, Had a biopsy after surg # 3 (found out I had Immotile Cilia Syndrome). Surg # 4 I had complication with nasal abscesses. In 2003 I was hospitalized for having MRSA in my sinuses. Was sick for a month with multiple antibiotics. I was in the hospital for 4 days and on IV therapy for 5 weeks (Vanco). In the past 5 years I have only had Bronchitis and sinusitis once. I feel great, but still have to irrigate regularly and take Flonase in the fall and spring. One thing that has not changed since having the first surgery is the dark green scab that colonizes in the window of my left maxillary sinus. I blow it or regularly. I know it's in that location from prior doctor visits. Some times I don't have pain and at other times I'm in a lot of pain until the scab softens and comes out. I can feel sick for two days and once it's out I feel better. What is this from and why do I keep getting this?
