What will life be like with nasal polyps.?

I have an ENT test tomorrow and afraid they'll find NP. I've had swelling in my nose for 8 weeks after a sinus infection that isnt going away. I also have a weak sense of smell. No discharge or post nasal drip. Can sometimes breathe out of my nose. Sometimes it's a little stuffy, other times clear as a bell.

    I've had the same thing as you for decades. Usually it feels stuffy when I breathe through my nose. I never really thought about it. It never bothered me and one way or another. Some people get surgery to remove polyps. Since I have partial blockage only, it doesn't bother me much.  

    No, I don't use nasal steroids or salt rinses. I taste food super well. My sense of smell is limited because I'm a smoker. I've had this for 30 years and haven't thought about it for years until your post.

      Do you use nasal steroids? How are your senses of taste and smell? Thanks for your reply.
