Is It Possible To Remove Sinusitis By Itself?
Hello, Titin Sumarni 35 yrs, after sinusitis surgery there is a stitch on top of my teeth, can it be removed or the connection can be removed by myself
Hello Titin, thank you for asking.
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses that can occur in one or more sinuses in the skull. Generally sinusitis is experienced by people who have a history of atopy such as allergic rhinitis, or people with deformed nasal septum. People with a history of atopy are generally more prone to inflammation of the respiratory tract causing nasal congestion and mucus. As a result, sinus congestion will easily become infected. Sinusitis can be felt mild, can also be severe to cause annoying headaches and mucus in the nose or throat that smells.
Generally people with chronic sinusitis will be advised to undergo surgery to prevent recurring sinusitis and more severe complications. The doctor will operate through endoscopy. Generally this procedure only produces a small surgical wound. Regarding the surgical suture, depending on the type of sewing thread used by the doctor. If the doctor uses stitches with natural ingredients, then along with the healing process the stitches will be absorbed by the body so that they run out by themselves. If the doctor uses stitches with synthetic materials, the stitches will not be absorbed by the body and must be removed. Doctors use synthetic stitches generally with the consideration that the stitches do not come off and open by themselves due to the process of absorption by the body, before the surgical wound heals properly. To be certain whether you need to remove the stitches or not, you should ask the doctor who treats you. Meanwhile, follow the doctor's instructions for how to take medication and how to treat wounds if any.
Hope this answer helps. Regards.
