I just wanted to post on what my Doc said about fungus and chronic sinutis. I live in Columbus, Ohio. My old allergist is my new allergist’s dad (I guess this family is dedicated). And he specializes in chronic sinutis and also battles it himself. I asked him what he thought about the Mayo Clinics findings on fungus and he told me that just last week he was at a “ round table meeting” with all the top doc’s in town about this issue. They came to the conclusion that the doc was nuts and so far away from the typical norm of what the general doc population feels is the correct cause of it. But he also said that every medical breakthrough came from someone who was originally thought to be nuts! So he told me to stay tuned and take these reports with a grain of salt. I thought is was very funny how candid he was talking about this guy. But he did say that what has really worked with his patients is to treat the sinus for “staff” (not sure of the spelling of this) infection. I guess people who have chronic sinus problems; their bodies do not take care of the typical staff infection so we need to spray antibiotics into them manually. I thought this was very interesting because it goes along with my fibro in that my body is so beat down, that I cannot fight even the typical staff bacteria in my nose.
