Hi I had an in-office balloon sinuplasty 11 days ago. Virtualloy no pain during or after. However, starting 2 days ago, have felt a fluttering sensastion in L ear that i can actually hear. Plus, it seems like i have pressure and/or fluid on that side. No pain but I'm worried it will turn into something more. I had my post-op appt 3 days ago and doctor thought everythign looked great. Completed the 10 day course of antibiotics as well. Is this common to happen because of the inflammation? I had no swelling on my left nostril post op, but lots of swelling on my right sinus sides. Have been doing at least 3 nasal rinses daily along with saline nasal spray.View Thread
