Facial Pain
Apr 6, 2006
Hello Everyone,

I am a regular on the Liver Disorder board, I have had such good reponses on it that I thought I would check the warter on this one.....since I have so many problems.

I am 33 yrs old and have 3 very active children and a demanding job. I have had lots of problems for years and they just seem to get worse. I had my tonsils out a couple of years ago due to chronic strep throat and tonsilitis. Any way for the last 6 months my sinuses have been in horrible shape. I have been on all the Claritan D, Alegra D, Zyrtec D and Sudafed and Nyquil ...... and so forth. But my left side of my face hurts like crazy. I sleep on my left side at night so everything drains to that side. I have tried sleeping on my rightside but since I have liver tumors and had a resection to remove one last july I can't sleep on that side b/c of the pain. After several treatments of Avelox, Augmentin, Cipro and tons of steroids and 30 lbs. later we are going to try surgery. Septoplasty, Reduction of the turbinates and removing a bone spur from the septum on the left side.

The pain is so bad that I have to take Percocet or Lortab. Have any of you had this problem? And have you had the surgery?

Quite a few on these forums have had surgery done. My surgery was done 4 weeks ago on Friday. Septoplasty & turbinate reduction. Went pretty well for me. No more facial pain (huge plus! I was in massive pain for 6 months). I would recommend it personally. Some people do have problems, but if you have a good surgeon, you shouldn't have too many. I was really nervous about my surgery and didn't think it would help, but I'm very happy with how things worked out for me. I've felt better than I have in months, especially since I'm not popping pain meds every 2-4 hours any more like I was before and waking up in the middle of the night crying from the pain.
