Sinus Surgery

On June 4th, Emery went in for endoscopic sinus surgery to have nasal polyps removed and to get her sinuses cleaned out.  It ended up taking about 2 hours to do the procedure and afterwards her doctor said it was a really good thing that we brought her in.  He showed us a picture of one of her nasal passages which I will spare you in case you are eating!  But it was very interesting to see!


Now that we know what to look for, hopefully we can get her in before it gets too bad next time.  And yes, there will be a next time.  This is a recurring thing with many people who have CF, so her doctor said to expect to be back at some point. 

 We can tell that it has really helped.  No more snoring, she's trying new foods, we can hear that she's breathing more easily.  It was a great thing.
