Gosh Suzanne. It sounds like you really have seen many different specialists to try and figure this all out. I can’t imagine your frustration and fatigue you probably have.
The reason why I asked so many questions is because, I had what was supposed to be a minor sinus surgery for ear issues. I never had sinus infections or anatomical breathing issues prior to surgery. Since my surgery I have had many issues.
I have had to get many opinions and educate myself on what exactly causes infections/inflammation and what exactly surgery will and will not do for the issues. Do you mind if I ask the name of your ENT or if you don’t feel comfortable naming, at least the location? It sounds like your body had a struggle adjusting to the new external irritants in a new country. And with all the work to fight off infection and surgeries it has now thrown other systems off in your body.
There is always a place for Western Medicine, but have you tried working with functional medicine/natural path doctors to try and get your body back to as close to homeostasis as possible. Some of the more natural regimens require months of being diligent and patient, but it is worth a try. Since you were healthy before your body is fighting to get back to that place. If you have a resistant staph infection, I’m curious how you learned it was staph and how your labs could come back normal?
Your body has now experienced a lot of internal trauma and stress, which will need to be addressed to help in the healing process.
