Hi @jvo23 and welcome to Connect.
I'm tagging a few other members who have mentioned sinus surgeries and polyps. Please meet @huronshores @auntnanny @flott118 @samy @pfists and @danielad who may have experiences to share with you.

In the meantime Jvo23, can you tell us a bit more about yourself? Have the surgeries been unsuccessful at removing the polyps or have there been other complications? Do you have ongoing infections or allergic reactions that are leading to the high levels of eosinophils? Can you give us more info about your situation?

I am 47. This all started 12 years ago when I was pregnant with my second son. Never had sinus problems or asthma before then. The doctor's have me on a medicine called Cinquar (like Nucala) for eosinophilic disorder. It helps with asthma a bit but not with sinuses. Haven't had a sense of smell in years! Oral steroids are the only thing that gets the swelling down, but it is short lived. Sinus surgeries only help for a little while.
