His ENT visit went fairly quickly today. Azer told her everything that they've tried to help his cough. He let her know that if this isn't a sinus problem, the only other option going forward is a bronchoscopy.
She looked in his nose. There is some inflammation, as there always is, and some visible polyps. She wants to get a CT scan done, but right now, it would be difficult to get a clear picture of the polyps among all the inflammation. She is giving Azer about a month of antibiotics, and is adding another steroid ointment to his nasal rinse on top of the pulmicort and inhaled pulmozyme. She is also adding an antihistamine spray with his usual Flonase. After three weeks of this, he will have a CT scan done, and she will assess if things have gotten any better. If not, Azer might be having another polyp removal surgery. The ENT doctor said she would discuss with the pulmonologist if it would be possible to schedule a bronchoscopy during the same surgery.
