“Silent Sinus Syndrome”

Since my blog seems to get a lot of hits from people searching for “Silent Sinus Syndrome”, I added a “Silent Sinus Syndrome” tag so maybe they can more easily get to all the other posts that I had about my medical problem.  If my experience can end up helping some other person who has a wide eye and doesn’t know what’s wrong with them, then that is great!

I recommend Dr. Andrew Lane at Johns Hopkins University Hospital for all your Silent Sinus Syndrome needs. 🙂

I’m wondering if it is more common than I thought because it seems to pop up in searches a lot.


I had my last follow-up appointment with Dr. Andrew Lane at Johns Hopkins otolaryngology dept today. He said there is no more swelling, and my sinus looks like a normal sinus now. (more…)

The opthalmologist appointment on Thursday went pretty well. He basically confirmed that my eyeball has sunken. He pulled up the images from the CT scan (more…)

I don’t want to go into too much detail about my appointment today. Basically, the swelling has gone down. He said everything is looking pretty good, (more…)

Last week’s 1-week follow-up went by without a hitch. He looked up my nose, said everything was looking pretty good, gave me instructions to rinse out my sinuses and sent me on my way.

Today was my 2-week follow-up. (more…)

Well, Clint’s blogged about my surgery here: http://clintjcl.wordpress.com/2007/02/12/medical-carolyns-surgery-was-a-success/

All in all, I’m very surprised at how little pain I feel. (more…)

I do not need a biopsy based on what the CT Scan showed. Just regular sinus surgery, which is scheduled for February 12th.

5 days before my surgery, I’m going to be on antibiotics, and a steroid medicine. (more…)
