Why surgery isn’t the best option for Nasal Polyps recovery
Have you had surgery for your nasal polyps, and they returned shortly after? You are part of the 7 out of 10 patients who have their polyps return after surgery. I would expect a much higher success rate from such an expensive and risky procedure.
I am here with some goods news. Manuel Richards of The Nasal Polyps Treatment Miracle™ has found a way to be rid of nasal polyps, without any expensive surgery. You will be glad to hear that there is no need for prescription medications, sprays or expensive doctor’s visits.
Sounds too good to true?
I was skeptical when I first heard Richard’s claims. And I bet you are feeling the same right now. Let me share with you what I learned from Mr Richard’s guide. Before we get into the details of why surgery is unsuccessful 7 out ot 10 times, let’s have a look at the cause of nasal polyps.
What causes nasal polyps to be formed?
While it can be a tough task to find the exact trigger of sinus polyps in every patient, the one constant is an irritation in the nasal passages. This irritation leads to inflammation, and if this inflammation is not treated, it can lead to the affected cells building up fluid. This fluid will result in the growths.
Why is surgery not working?
While surgery has its place in the treatment of severe cases of nasal polyps, it is not a great treatment option for milder cases. The main reason for this is that surgery attacks the symptoms of nasal polyps, and does not affect the cause of the polyps.
As we discussed above, while the inflammation remains untreated, their will be fluid build-up, and these will result in new polyps forming shortly after the surgery.
On top of surgery only being successfull as a long term cure, it is also a very costly procedure. The recovery time from this sort of surgical procedure can be anything from 2 to 6 weeks depending on how severe your polyps are.
Recovery from nasal polyps surgery is no walk in the park
Nasal polyps surgery is a major procedure, and can be scary. Let me talk you through the post-op recovery steps which will take at least two weeks.
The first few days after the procedure will be the worst. Your sinuses will be filled with packing, which can be uncomfortable. This packing is to prevent bleeding. If you are lucky, you will have some straws inserted through the packing to assist in breathing.
EDIT: Some doctors now use a form of gel, which supposedly works much better than the packing.
For these first few days, you will be on some relatively strong pain medication. These will make you drowsy, and you will most likely sleep a whole lot more than what you are used to. Think upwards of 12 hours a day.
With your sinuses being filled with packing, you won’t be able to smell much. With smell and taste being so closely tied together, don’t expect to taste much of what you are eating.
Your doctor will prescribe doing nothing. Sitting around, lying in bed is the prescribed activities for the first 4 days or so. You will be wearing an unflattering sausage under your nose. This is to prevent any leakage from your nasal passages.
Roughly 5 days after the surgery, your packing will be removed. If you are lucky, your doctor will do this under anesthesia. If not, you will be ‘alive’ during this procedure. Let’s just say, this can be uncomfortable at best. Your sinuses might also be cleaned out at this time. Chances are you will have a number of cleanings in the months following your surgery.
At this point you will start feeling better. You will be able to breathe, through some gauze of course.
Around day 10 you will undergo another cleaning. This time around you won’t have the luxury of going under, and will be ‘awake’ for this procedure. This is very uncomfortable, and you will be surprised at the size of the ‘vacuums’ being inserted into your nasal passages.
In the days following this cleaning, you will have some pretty disgusting discharges from your passages.
You will need to remain relatively passive for the next week, you should be looking at taking off two weeks after polyps surgery.
A month after surgery you will be back to normal, hopefully polyp free still. Chances are that your doctor will prescribe a spray that you will be using long term to try and prevent the polyps from returning.
I hope this illustrates how big of an ordeal nasal polyps surgery can be.
The dangers of surgery
Now I don’t want to scare you away from surgery completely, but the fact is that this is a major procedure. I am sure you probably guessed that from the recovery steps above.
Surgery will always have some element of risk involved, some of the dangers associated with nasal polyps surgery are:
- Surgery can lead to brain fluid leakage and intracranial bleeding. Sounds serious, because it is serious. This can lead to meningitis, which can be fatal.
- Another danger is vision alteration\loss. Your sinuses are very close to your eyes. There have been reports of patients going completely blind after nasal polyps surgery.
What is the alternative to surgery?
Well, as I mentioned at the start of the article, Manuel Richards have come up with a natural solution to nasal polyps. Richards has been a student of this painful and embarrassing condition for years now, and have found that by eliminating the cause (inflammation), the symptoms (the polyps) will subside, and actually go away completely.
This method revolves around treating your polyps naturally. There have been reports of patients getting real results in a matter of days. No surgery, no post-op recovery time, no expensive medications.

This means that you will be making some lifestyle and diet changes to combat the inflammation, which we now know is the main cause. There are certain foods that lead to higher levels of inflammation. At the same time, other foods are great at fighting inflammation.
