I had sinus lavage surgery 2 weeks ago. Was given antibiotics and pain medication. 1 week after surgery pressure started building in ears and ringing along with some pain and not able to clear the eustachain tubes. Dr. Put me on Dexamethasone for inflammation and Alkalol to help with mucus and keep the nasal passages moist. Dr. says it will get better. It's getting worse. They told me before the surgery it was a 2 to 3 day recovery. Not working out that way.
