Delay for removal of polyps
I have 3-4 time a year sinusitis. My ENT specialist recommended to have the nasal polyps removed but he mentioned, that they will come back and therefore I should wait with the operation as long as possible. Right now, I am treated with steroid-containing nasal spray and if needed antibiotics for oral use. Now I read about the Pari Sinus device that reaches also the sinuses in contrast to the nasal spray. Would it be possible to achieve a reduction of the nasal polyps with a suitbale drug administerd by the Pari Sinus and therefore to have more time until an operation would be necessary?

Shisha bar and having a joint
Dear expert team, many of my friends visit shisha bars. Would smoking with them be harmful for me? It is only water steam and only few tobacco. This is certainly not so dangerous as cigarette smoking? Having a joint , for example, should also relax the airways. Is having a joint better than smoking shisha? Thank you.

Backpack holiday
I am leaving to Norway by car this summer and I am planning to make a multi-day trip with backpack. What is the best way to sterilize my aerosol ? I have heard of javeltablets but then I have to find a source of fresh water each time. Also, I wonder how to keep pulmozyme permanently below 8 degrees celcius, because that also seems to be difficult to reach through a cooling bag.
Kluyvera ascorbata in the sputum
Hello, in my last sputum sample there were besides Staphlococcus aureus and Aspergillus fumigatus the above mentioned bacteria. My treating physician thinks that waiting would be the right decision, until the next sputum sample. The symptoms I have did not change. I never heard anything about this bacterium. Could you give me some information about it? Many thanks
