Surgery and Extended Flare Ups
« on: August 06, 2014, 07:58:46 AM »
Hi, I had a sinus surgery on 7/18/14. So far so good for sinuses, but caused a huge flare up.

It was in-office, local anesthesia, procedure so I didn't anticipate would be so rough to cause a flare. I passed through the initial fatigue phase of extreme fatigue, neuropathy, stomach issues, etc at 7-10 days. Thought I was through. Then I got an ear infection secondary to surgery and unexpectedly hit with a second phase of flare up. Very bad neuropathy, fatigue, etc.

My flares usually last 1 to 2 weeks on average (with or without prednisone intervention). I am about 3 weeks into the flare now and unfortunately no abatement of symptoms. Anyone have a similar experience that I can compare notes with?
