Unless things change, I am having my bilataral endoscopic ethmoidectomy, antrostomy and DPP on Tues next week (24/10). I forget what they said the DPP was! I have to stay in hospital over night and my ENT will do it in the pm. His rooms says I shouldn't have a problem with post-op pain. I hope not!

Will let you know the outcome. Thanks for the prompt reply to my previous posting.

This is going to cost me a penny or two (my ENT's bill only is just under R7000!) I don't know yet what Discovery will pay of that but hope its most of it! I am not working so that doesnt help either. But hopefully this will help in preventing me getting sick in the future with my throat/chest infection trouble I so offen get which all starts with my sinuses!

Dear Anxious
Discovery should cover the cost as you are going to save them stacks in sinusmedication and antibiotic prescriptions. All of the best!
