Can I still have surgery with a sinus infection?

Sign in to follow this  


Hello, I have been reading the forum for the last month and have been so grateful to all of you that share your experiences. My surgery is scheduled for July 26th.


My problem is that I have had a sinus infection since December 2009. I have been on antibiotics since that time. I had my first clear siunus scan on June 26th, and was cleared for surgery, and June 27th I woke up sick...again.


My hope is that my sinus issues are being triggered by acid reflux and that by having VGS surgery it will not only help with weight but also with my sinuses.


Has anyone heard of it helping? Can I have my sugery with a sinus infection? Any suggestions?

(ps...i do all the sinus irrigation, sudafed, nasal sprays etc):scared0:

It should be OK because they will load you up with antibiotics because of the surgery. I was also sick but my surgery went fine. By the way if you have acid reflux please get an acid reducer because you will notice the acid more and sooner. I thought I would not need the acid pill any longer but that is not the case. You can read my blog on (I did it) to hear the story from start to finish on the surgery itself.

I have my acid reducer ready to take the morning of surgery. I also just made an apt with a new ENT and maybe they can get this infection under control before surgery. Congrats on your wonderful progress!
